BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Hunter success during last fall’s limited pronghorn hunting season in North Dakota was 89 percent.

The first open season since 2009 was held only in the far southwestern part of the state, where state wildlife officials determined there was a surplus of bucks. The Game and Fish Department issued 249 licenses, and 235 hunters took 210 pronghorn.

The pronghorn that were killed included 199 bucks, five does and six fawns. Ten percent of the harvest occurred during the early bow-only part of the season, with 90 percent occurring during the 16 ½ days when hunters could use guns.
