Bill Lets Traveling Med Students Hunt As Residents

Bill Lets Traveling Med Students Hunt As Residents
PIERRE, SD -

A state House committee has unanimously approved a bill to let South Dakotans completing medical or dental residencies out of state get resident hunting and fishing licenses.

Supporters of the bill say it will help recruit and retain doctors because medical students often have to leave the state to complete their residency training.

Out-of-state hunters pay more for licenses than do residents, but a state Game, Fish and Parks Department official says the bill will have little financial impact.

Rep. Scott Ecklund, of Brandon, says the measure could reward doctors who hunt and fish and may decide to practice in rural areas. Ecklund, who is a doctor, says passing the measure would show the Legislature's gratitude for students who complete residencies out of state.
