SD: Special Buck Hunting Seasons Finalized
PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has finalized 2012 Special Buck hunting seasons with no changes in structure from the 2011 seasons.
The Commission had earlier recommended increases in the number of resident and nonresident West River Special Buck licenses from 500 to 600, and increasing the $500 nonresident fee to $600. Those proposals were defeated at the GFP March meeting, and the existing season structure was left in place.
The application process is now open for the limited Special Buck licenses available for those seasons. Hunters may apply online, or print an application from the GFP website and mail the application to the GFP License Office. Printed applications will be available in field offices by the end of March. The application deadline for Special Buck seasons is April 20.
