GFP Commission proposes changes to non-resident waterfowl licenses

PIERRE – Earlier this month, the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission proposed to expand the area in which three-day temporary non-resident waterfowl hunters will be able to hunt.
Currently, non-residents holding the three-day, NWR-00X license can hunt the counties of Campbell, Edmunds, Faulk, McPherson, Walworth, Potter, Stanley, Sully, Hughes and Lyman. The 00X licenses are good for private land only in Potter, Stanley, Sully, Hughes and Lyman counties.
The proposal expands this license to include all of the state, with the exception of Unit NRW-00Y (Spink, Brown, Marshall, Roberts, Day, Grant, Clark, Codington, Deuel and Hamlin), Unit NRW-11A (Bennett County), and Unit NRW-00A (Charles Mix, Bon Homme, Yankton, Clay and Union counties). The proposal would also make these licenses valid on private land only.
The Commission also proposed to move Brown County from the NRW-00Y to the NRW-00X unit.
The Commission proposed to keep the number of licenses available at the current levels of 1,500 for the NRW-00X and 500 for the NRW-00Y units.
The Commission decided to wait and finalize this proposal on June 8 at Cedar Shore Resort in Oacoma to give individuals more time to review and comment on the proposal. Written comments can be sent to wildinfo@state.sd.us. To be part of the public record, comments must be received by 12 p.m. CST on June 8. Please include a full name along with the city and state of residence. To comment in person, the public hearing will be held June 8, at 2 p.m. CST at the Cedar Shore Resort in Oacoma.
