North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is making 172 any-deer bow hunting licenses available to nonresidents this year.

March 1 is the deadline to apply. A lottery will be held if more applications are received than there are licenses available. Any remaining licenses after March 1 will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

The number of nonresident any-deer bow licenses is 15 percent of the previous year's mule deer gun license allocation. Game and Fish issued 1,150 antlered mule deer licenses in the 2013 deer gun lottery.

This year's bow season opens at noon on Aug. 29 and runs through next Jan. 4.
