BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Nearly all hunters who got a moose license in North Dakota last year bagged an animal, while about two-thirds of elk hunters found success.

The state Game and Fish Department says hunter success in 2015 was 96 percent for moose and 69 percent for elk. That was up from 88 percent for moose and 67 percent for elk in 2014.

Moose, elk and bighorn sheep licenses are issued as once-in-a-lifetime licenses in North Dakota. There was no bighorn sheep hunting season last year for the first time in more than three decades due to bacterial pneumonia in the herd.
