Nonresident Youth Hunting Licenses - A nonresident under age 16
need only purchase a North Dakota resident fishing, hunting and
furbearer certificate and a North Dakota resident general game and
habitat license to hunt small game and waterfowl, except swans and wild
turkeys; provided that the nonresident's state of residence, or province
or territory of Canada, provides a reciprocal licensing agreement for
North Dakota residents who are also under age 16. (Currently states of
AL, AR, CO, CT, ID, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NE, NJ, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX,
WA and WI qualify.) To be eligible, a nonresident youth must not turn 16
before September 1 of the year for which the license is issued, and
must possess a certificate of completion for a certified hunter
education course. The nonresident youth may only hunt under the
supervision of an adult family member or legal guardian who is licensed
to hunt small game or waterfowl in this state and is subject to the same
regulations as that youth's adult family member or legal guardian.
Youth from states that do not qualify for reciprocity must obtain
required adult nonresident licenses.
NOTE: In accordance with state law, nonresidents are not allowed
to hunt on Game and Fish Department wildlife management areas or
conservation PLOTS (Private Land Open To Sportsmen) areas from October
9-15, 2021. Exception: Nonresidents hunting on PLOTS land they own.
Make sure to check with the official
state DNR / Game / Hunting authorities to confirm that no changes to the
seasons have taken place.
