SD Lawmakers Endorse Waterfowl License Bill

SD Lawmakers Endorse Waterfowl License Bill
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative panel has endorsed a plan aimed at ending years of wrangling on nonresident waterfowl hunting licenses by returning more control to the state commission that regulates hunting and fishing.

The Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee voted 8-1 to approve a measure that would keep in law the current authorization for 4,000 10-day licenses and 2,000 three-day licenses. But the state Game, Fish and Parks Commission would be allowed to increase the number of those nonresident licenses by up to 5 percent a year and decide where in the state those licenses could be used.

The compromise bill replaces an earlier version that sought to provide special hunting licenses for nonresidents who were born in South Dakota or had previously lived and hunted in the state.
