BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's deer gun season has closed, but the state Game and Fish Department says there are still some hunting opportunities in North Dakota.

Several national wildlife refuges in the state opened to late-season upland game bird hunting on Monday They include Arrowwood, Audubon, Des Lacs, J. Clark Salyer, Lake Alice, Lake Zahl, Long Lake, Lostwood, Tewaukon, and Upper Souris.

Game and Fish says hunting on the Tewaukon refuge is for pheasants only, and portions of all refuges are closed to hunters. Other restrictions also apply, such as the use of nontoxic shot.

The hunting seasons for pheasant, sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge and ruffed grouse close statewide on Jan. 5.
