The South Dakota Senate has passed a measure aimed at ending years of argument over nonresident waterfowl hunting.
Senators voted 33-2 to approve a bill that would return more control over those licenses to the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission, which regulates hunting and fishing.
The bill would keep the current authorization for 4,000 10-day licenses and 2,000 three-day licenses for out-of-state hunters, but would eliminate provisions that allocate some licenses to specific counties. The Game, Fish and Parks Commission could increase the number of those nonresident licenses by up to 5 percent a year and decide where those licenses could be used to hunt ducks and geese.
The House earlier passed a different version, and will now decide whether to accept changes made by the Senate.
