Deer season is quickly approaching and so far, it’s looking promising for hunters.

There are only 2 species of deer in North Dakota including mule and white tail deer.

According to Greg Gullickson with Game and Fish – the outlook this year looks better than last years.

Their numbers are showing that mule deer – mostly found in the southwest part of the state are increasing.

White tail deer across the state are also steadily increasing.

“Some good news for hunters. We were able to issue a few more tags so we’re going to have a few more people out in the field and it looks to be a great season. In fact, I drew my tags after 5 years so I’m especially excited about this deer season,” said Greg Gullickson, Game and Fish Department Outreach Biologist.

Deer season officially kicks off on Friday, November 9th at noon.

If you are one of the people that will be hunting, there are rules that you need to follow.

Gullickson says that one of the biggest rules is to wear blaze orange clothing on your body and on your head.

To specify – camouflage orange is not legal.

You also must purchase a deer license plus a general game and habitat license.

Once you get those you will receive your tags.

Lastly, you need to be aware of posting and trespassing.

“We really need to be working with those land owners, with those farmers and ranchers. Get permission to excess their property and the time to do that – to ask that permission is before deer season,” said Gullickson.

Gullickson adds that you need to have your tags with you while you are hunting.

If you get a deer, you must put that tag on immediately after its killed.
