I don't know what your friends are putting in for, maybe buck mule deer only or whitetail buck only. In the last 16 years of hunting North Dakota whitetails, the only time I have ever NOT gotten a tag is if I put in for a buck - and that was only one year, I still got doe tags. Mule deer are a different story - there aren't as many and they are all on the west side of the state.
My Dad, a few friends of ours, and myself have all on a regular basis been able to get pretty much as many tags as we want - we have had five each at the same time.
Non-residents I don't know about.
Current deer population is down significantly from a few years back, so its harder to get a deer, but not a tag.
