Three-quarters of North Dakota pronghorn hunters find success

(U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)

Hunter success during last fall’s pronghorn hunting season was 75 percent, according to statistics provided by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.

Game and Fish issued 410 licenses (255 lottery and 155 gratis), and 366 hunters took 275 pronghorn – 264 bucks, 10 does and one fawn. Each hunter spent an average of 2.4 days afield, according to Game and Fish.

Three percent of the harvest occurred during the archery-only portion of the season.

The 2018 pronghorn hunting season will be determined in July.
