BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Time is running out for hunters to apply for an elk, moose or bighorn sheep license in North Dakota.

The Game and Fish Department says the deadline is midnight Wednesday.

A total of 338 elk licenses are available this fall, an increase of 37 from last year. A total of 202 moose licenses are available, an increase of 70.

A bighorn sheep hunting season is tentatively scheduled for the fall, but it won’t be finalized until after a summer population study. From two to eight licenses are likely to be handed out.

Elk, moose and bighorn sheep lottery licenses are issued as once-in-a-lifetime licenses in North Dakota. Hunters who have received a license in the past aren’t eligible to apply for that species again.
