North Dakota Game and Fish Department big game biologist Brett Wiedmann, on a routine telemetry flight, located six radio-collared big horns that had died. All six appeared to have been victims of the severe winter weather. “I was real concerned at that point,” Wiedmann said. “Probably only a bison can withstand harsh winters more than a big horn can. They’re a real tough animal."
BISMARCK — State wildlife officials have finished planning for North Dakota’s special big game seasons.
The state Game and Fish Department said 561 elk licenses are available this fall, the same as last year. A total of 148 moose licenses are available, up six.
The deadline to submit an application for the 2009 North Dakota moose, elk and bighorn sheep license lottery is March 18. Even though the odds of drawing one of these “big three” licenses is small, you of course can’t get one if you don’t fill out and send in a paper or online application.
