March 18, 2019 - Big Game Application Period Opens
April 29, 2019 - Big Game Application Period Deadline
May 6, 2019 - Bonus Point Application and Application Withdrawal Period Closes
May 24, 2019 - Initial Draw Results Released

NDOW has made several improvements to the application process including 2018’s launch of a new, streamlined purchasing system ( that focuses on web and mobile platforms and simplified license options which include all state stamps. Sportsmen are now able to download their licenses to their mobile devices and print them from home, making it even easier to get outside.

“It’s our goal to make the application process as simple as possible to our customers,” said NDOW Data and Technology Services Program Officer Sherrill Sundell. “In fact, 51 percent of NDOW customers applied and purchased their licenses on mobile devices in 2018.”
