Archery Deer Application Deadline Approaching
South Dakota's archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 21, and if archers want to have their archery deer license by that date, state Game, Fish and Parks officials say archers need to submit their application no later than Aug. 23.
"The archery deer season is not too far off," said Al Jockheck, supervisor of the license office in Pierre. "To allow time for processing and return mailing, archery deer paper applications and electronic applications must be submitted no later than Aug. 23 to guarantee delivery by opening day, Sept 21."
To apply online, applicants should visit www.state.sd.us/gfp/BigGameApps/. Paper applications can be printed from www.state.sd.us/gfp/hunting/Applications/, or picked up at GFP offices and most license agents.
