BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota wildlife officials say all four hunters who got bighorn sheep licenses last year bagged a ram.
One license is given out in North Dakota every year through an auction to raise money for sheep management, and the rest are given out through a lottery drawing. The season is in October and November.
Bighorn sheep, moose and elk licenses are issued as once-in-a-lifetime licenses in North Dakota. The state Game and Fish Department says hunter success during last year's moose season was 91 percent, and for the elk season 50 percent.
