Commission Expects Drop In South Dakota Deer Tags

Commission Expects Drop In South Dakota Deer Tags
PIERRE, SD -

The number of South Dakota deer hunting licenses is expected to drop substantially this year due to habitat loss and a disease that thrives in dry weather.

Game, Fish and Parks Commission Chairman John Cooper says the total number of tags for the East River deer season will drop by about 40 percent. West River tags will be down 56 percent.

The commission will review the license proposals at a meeting Thursday and Friday at Custer State Park.

A public hearing on a change to the state's hunting license policy is scheduled for Thursday at 2 p.m.

The proposed change would allow hunters to buy "preference points," giving them a higher priority in subsequent years when applying for limited licenses.

Cooper says other western states have similar systems.
