North Dakota Sets Fall Turkey Season

North Dakota Game and Fish

A total of 6,610 wild turkey licenses are available for the 2002 fall hunting season, an increase of 100 from last year, reports Randy Kreil, wildlife chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Additional changes include two new units and two unit boundary changes.

"Turkeys continue to do well in most parts of the state," Kreil said, "and the license numbers for the 2002 season reflect this trend."

The only exception is the badlands area north of Medora, Kreil noted, where licenses in units 4 and 17 decreased by 25 percent.

New fall turkey hunting units are Unit 18, comprised of that portion of Grand Forks County north of U.S. Highway 2; and Unit 47, that portion of Stutsman County east of U.S. Highway 281.

Two units with minor boundary changes are Unit 51 (Burke, Renville, Ward and Bottineau counties) and Unit 27 (McKenzie and Williams counties). "These changes will provide more hunting opportunity and will clearly define unit boundaries," Kreil said.

Lottery applications are available from game and fish offices, county auditors and license vendors. Gratis applications are available only at game and fish and county auditors' offices.

Prospective hunters are encouraged to apply at the game and fish internet web site at The web site also contains application forms that can be printed and mailed. Regular license fees apply and no service charge is added.

Applications are also accepted at the department's toll-free licensing line, 1-800-406-6409. A service fee is added for license applications made over the phone.

Applications for the fall season must be postmarked no later than July 3. Applicants are urged to mail early because some post offices use the following day's postmark if mailed after regular hours. The department's online application feature will be deactivated July 3 at midnight central standard time.

The fall turkey season runs from Oct. 12 through Jan. 5, 2003. Only North Dakota residents are eligible to apply.
