South Dakota trappers lost an advocate when Brian Reynolds died unexpectedly on May 9 in Monroe.
He died shortly after submitting a petition to the Department of Game, Fish and Parks calling for the repeal of rules he found restrictive.
The Game, Fish and Parks Commission will review Reynolds' petition Thursday at a meeting. One contested rule prohibits setting a trap within 30 feet of water for part of the year. Another requires the removal of all traps from public land by May 1 each year.
Director of the Wildlife Division Tony Leif says Reynolds' feedback has been valuable to the department over the years.
Family members say Reynolds was intelligent and eager to educate or mentor others and designed some of his own traps.
