BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s pronghorn gun hunting season is underway.

The gun season began at noon Friday and runs through Oct. 18. The bow-only season was last month. Bow hunting also is allowed during the gun season.

Pronghorn have been slowly rebounding after being decimated by three straight severe winters starting in 2008. Last year’s limited hunting season was the first in North Dakota since 2009.

The state made 410 licenses available in three hunting units this fall, up from 250 licenses in only one unit last year. About 6,500 people applied for a license this year - about 16 people for every one license available.
