SD Board Works To Reduce Geese, Support Antelope

July 8, 2014, 7:17 PM

PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission is taking steps to reduce the goose population in the state, which is well over the state's objectives.

The commissioners met Tuesday in Fort Pierre to set hunting quotas for most geese seasons.

They gave initial approval to a plan allowing hunters 50 light geese a day, up from 20. The ideal population of these geese in the state is about 1 million. There are currently about 15 to 25 million.

Commissioners have also finalized the antelope hunting season. They have agreed to reduce the number of resident licenses by 27 percent.

Commissioners will review updates on the state's management plan for antelope before the August meeting. Game, Fish and Parks officials hope to increase their numbers in the state.
