Copies of the 2003 Hunting Atlas and 2003 Hunting Handbook are available at Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) offices and the department’s website at

"South Dakota’s latest hunting atlas and handbook can be picked up at most GFP offices," said Communications Manager Chuck Schlueter. "Since the initial supply of hunting atlases are limited, we are asking hunters to only pick up one and to be patient as more arrive. We should have all of the atlases prior to the start of the grouse season."

The Hunting Handbook has the general laws and regulations that hunters need to know. It also has information on license requirements, seasons, shooting hours and more.

The South Dakota Hunting Atlas is a consolidated brochure of maps that display Walk-In Areas, state Game Production Areas (GPAs), federal Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs), some School Lands and some Bureau of Land Management (BLM) properties.
