South Dakota GFP Commission Proposes Special Buck Tag Changes

FORT PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission is proposing two changes to Special Buck Deer Licenses for 2013.

The proposed changes would allow resident hunters to hold either West River Special Buck or East River Special Buck tags for any one year, but not both.

Special Buck License allocations would also be based on 4 percent of the previous year’s allocation of Resident Deer Licenses that included an “any deer” tag for both East River and West River seasons.  For 2013, that would be a proposed 461 resident and 461 nonresident West River Special Buck Licenses and 687 resident East River Special Buck Licenses.
