Looking for a hunting adventure that you could tell friends and family about for years to come?

North Dakota can be that place. Waterfowlers and upland game hunters can hunt until the season ends in early December to early January. In early November, hunters put down their shotguns and take up their rifles as deer season gets under way. Deer hunting is a traditional rite of passage for young hunting enthusiasts in North Dakota.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has comprehensive details regarding big game, upland game, waterfowl, furbearers, other migratory birds, and more.
