BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is making 502 any-deer bow licenses available to out-of-state hunters this year.

Applicants must apply online at the Game and Fish website. The deadline is March 1.

Up to five applicants can apply together as a party. A lottery will be held if more applications are received than licenses available. Any remaining licenses after March 1 will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses is 15 percent of the previous year's mule deer gun license allocation. Game and Fish issued 3,350 mule deer licenses in last year's deer gun license lottery.
