Pierre, SD -(Ammoland.com)- The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission proposed a change to the utilization of free antlerless deer licenses available to landowners.
These licenses are available to any qualifying farmer or rancher for use in the West River, East River, Youth, Archery and Muzzleloader deer hunting units where at least one antlerless deer tag is available.
Previously these have been available after the second lottery drawing from the previous year East River and West River deer seasons. However, no such free antlerless license is valid in counties where antlerless archery or a muzzleloader license is restricted. The requirements and equipment restrictions for each deer hunting season apply to any free antlerless license issued.
The Commission proposed to make free antlerless whitetail deer licenses available to those eligible landowners in hunting units offering deer licenses with multiple tags for antlerless deer in the lottery drawing for the East River and West River deer seasons.
The Commission will finalize this proposal at their June 2-3, 2015, meeting at the Watertown Convention Center. Written comments …Read the Rest
