BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Nearly three-fourths of the hunters who went in search of pronghorn in North Dakota last year were successful in bagging an animal.

The state Game and Fish Department says the success rate for last fall’s season was 73 percent, down a bit from 81 percent the year before. The agency issued 730 pronghorn licenses last year.

A string of harsh winters in the late 2000s decimated the population and prompted the state to disallow pronghorn hunting from 2010 through 2013 to allow the animals to recover. Seasons were opened again in 2014.

This year’s season will be determined in July.
