North Dakota will have a limited pronghorn hunting season this fall for the first time since 2009. Randy Kreil, wildlife chief for the State Game and Fish Department, said the season is open only in unit 4-A, the far southwestern corner of the state. A total of 250 any-pronghorn licenses are available, and the season is split into an early “bow-only” portion, and a later gun/bow season. Click here for more information.
It's that time of year again. Soon you will be getting notification from North Dakota Tourism to review your listing on our website. It is from here that we will pull the information to be included in the 2015 Travel Guide. While we encourage you to regularly look at and update your listing on our site, it is important that you make needed updates before deadlines for inclusion in the guide.
Attractions, accommodations, CVBs and chambers of commerce, must update their listings before August 2 to be sure they are updated in the guide. Events for 2015 must be entered before October 3. If your event for 2014 has not taken place, please be sure to create new listing for 2015. Click here to log in and update your information. Thank you for helping us with this annual project.
