Spring turkey drawing held, licenses remain

The 2010 spring wild turkey lottery has been held and more than 750 licenses remain in nine units. Only those hunters who do not have a license for the 2010 spring season are eligible to apply.

Licenses remain in Unit 06, Bowman County; Unit 17, portions of Billings and Golden Valley counties north of Interstate 94; Unit 30, portions of Morton County; Unit 31, Mountrail County; Unit 44, Slope County; Unit 45, Stark County; Unit 47, Eddy, Foster, Kidder, Sheridan, Stutsman and Wells counties; Unit 51, Burke County and portions of Renville, Bottineau and Ward counties; and Unit 99, Mercer and Oliver counties.

Hunters who do not have a license can apply online at, or by calling 701-328-6300 to request an application. Licenses are issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Spring turkey hunters must purchase a 2010-11 hunting license, as last year's 2009-10 licenses expire March 31. In addition to the spring turkey license, hunters must have a fishing, hunting and furbearer certificate, and a general game and habitat license. Also, hunters ages 16 and older must possess a small game license, or combination license.

Only North Dakota residents are eligible to apply.
