BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Applications are being accepted for elk, moose and bighorn sheep hunting licenses in North Dakota.

The Game and Fish Department says the deadline is March 22.

A total of 389 elk licenses are available for the fall hunt, an increase of 51 from last year. A total of 247 moose licenses are available, an increase of 45.

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 usually issued in years when hunting is allowed.

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.
