Change to License Year
The Wildlife Commission recently voted to change the regulation which
determines the license year for trapping. Licenses will now be valid
during the fiscal year (in other words a license will be valid from the date of
issue until the last day of June). The change is due in part to concerns about
better reflecting the seasonal harvest. Current license holders should
have received a license extension by mail. Please contact NDOW if you have
not received it.
Hunting and fishing licenses are not effected. That license year
will remain March 1 to February 28.
