BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Wednesday is the deadline for North Dakota hunters to apply for a 2018 pronghorn license.

The state Game and Fish Department has made 1,075 licenses available for the fall hunt in 10 units, up from 410 licenses in five units last year. The increase is due to a rebound in the pronghorn population.

This year's bow season is Aug. 31-Sept. 23. The pronghorn gun season is Oct. 5-21.

Wednesday also is the deadline for deer hunters who weren't successful in the initial license lottery to apply for a remaining doe license. More than 3,000 doe licenses remained in 11 units.

The 2018 deer gun season opens at noon Nov. 9 and runs through Nov. 25.
