SD Board: Deer Down, Geese Up For Hunting Season

SD Board: Deer Down, Geese Up For Hunting Season

The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission has approved new land acquisition and discussed other steps to support habitats and rebuild populations for some of the state's wild game.

The commission granted approval for the state to acquire 165 acres of land, most of which is in northwest Moody County. The land would be used for wildlife management and public hunting.

Officials say pheasant and deer populations are down in the state. The department will encourage more hunting of geese this year, which are in abundance.

The group met Friday at Custer State Park, where commissioners visited the site of the future visitor center, a $5 million project expected to break ground early next year.

The commission will meet again next month in Yankton.
