BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota wildlife officials say the state will have a limited pronghorn hunting season this fall for the first time since 2009.

The state Game and Fish Department says the season is limited to the southwest 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 and bow season.

A recent survey indicates about 5,700 pronghorns in the state, with 1,650 of the animals in the area that will be open to hunting.

Numbers are still below population objectives and not high enough to warrant a hunting season in other parts of the state for the animals commonly referred to as antelope.
