Harding County Hunter Advisory
With the start of firearm antelope season beginning Oct. 4, hunters are advised to check on the status of their favorite hunting spot before traveling out.
"Four landowners in Harding County have recently cancelled their Walk-In Area contracts," said Game, Fish and Parks Hunting Access Coordinator Bill Smith. "Their decisions to cancel their contracts came after the 2003 Atlas was printed, so those lands are still depicted in the 2003 Hunting Atlas as being open to Walk-In Area hunting, when they are not. These landowners will not be paid for their contracts, as they were cancelled before the major hunting seasons began."
Hunters can find out which areas these are by clicking on "WIA Deletions" on the atlas portion of the webpage at: www.state.sd.us/gfp/Publications/Atlas/Index.htm. Hunters can also download an updated version of the maps on this portion of the webpage.
