The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission will vote soon on several proposed changes to the fall turkey, antelope and early fall goose seasons.
Turkey season would move back a month to Nov. 1 but still run through Jan. 31. There would also be a reduction in licenses available and fewer areas to hunt statewide.
The firearm antelope hunting season would run Oct. 4-19 and have 2,705 licenses available for residents and 61 licenses available for nonresidents. The proposal would also close off Tripp and Lyman counties and the Fort Pierre National Grasslands for both gun and archery antelope hunting.
The commission proposed an early fall Canada goose season of Sept. 1-30, with changes to some units.
Commissioners take final action on the proposals July 8-9 in Fort Pierre.
