SD Commission Loosens Some Archery Restrictions

June 6, 2014, 2:19 PM


A South Dakota hunting oversight commission has passed changes to archery restrictions.

The Game, Fish and Parks Commission met Thursday and Friday in Yankton and took public testimony on the changes.

Barbed points on arrows are now allowed, as are mechanical broad heads, which open upon impact.

Archers will also be able to use lights on their sights, which supporters say is necessary at ground level where visibility is limited. Cameras and cellphones can be used with sights for photographs.

Dana Rogers, an outdoor writer and bow hunter, supports many of the changes. He says the rules respond to technology upgrades and will help draw new archers to the sport.

The changes drew detailed comments from bow hunters, including critics who dislike incorporating new technologies in bow hunting.
