Gov. Dennis Daugaard has appointed Gary Jensen of Rapid City to the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission.
Jensen succeeds Jeffrey Olson of Rapid City, who served two terms and was not eligible for reappointment.
By statute, the opening has to be filled by a West River non-farmer.
Jensen is a partner in the Beardsley, Jensen and Von Wald law firm. Daugaard says Jensen has a strong interest in the outdoors.
The governor also reappointed Jim Spies of Watertown to the commission. He initially was appointed in 2010.
The appointments are subject to state Senate confirmation.
