YANKTON, S.D. -(Ammoland.com)- A proposal by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission would require archery, muzzleloader, youth and mentored deer hunters to obtain a free access permit to hunt on the Hill Ranch Game Production Area in Fall River County (Unit 27L), Custer National Forest lands in Harding County (Unit 35L) and the Little Moreau Game Production Area in Dewey County (Unit 24B).
Permits are free of charge and unlimited. The issuance of these permits will allow agency staff to improve the collection of hunter use and harvest information from hunters who use these areas.
The Commission will finalize this proposal at their June 5-6 meeting in Yankton at Lewis and Clark Resort. To be part of the official public record, comments must be received by 12 p.m. on June 5.
Please include your full name along with the city and state of residence. If you would like to comment in person, the public hearing will be held Thursday, June 5, at 2 p.m. CDT at Lewis and Clark Resort in Yankton.
