South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks commissioners are raising fees next year for several nonresident hunting licenses to boost annual revenue by more than $1.1 million.
The commission approved the increases Thursday during a meeting at Camp Lakodia near Madison. No changes were made to resident hunting license fees.
A nonresident 10-day small game license will increase by $10 to $120, while an annual shooting preserve license is going up by $35 to $120. Two nonresident shooting preserve licenses are increasing $10, with a 1-day costing $45 and a 5-day costing $75.
Nonresident waterfowl licenses are increasing $10, with a 10-day running $120 and a 3-day costing $85.
South Dakota's hunting industry draws outdoor enthusiasts from across the country, especially from nearby Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wyoming.
