Reduced Nonresident Deer and Antelope Fees Proposed

A recent Game, Fish and Parks proposal would establish reduced fees for nonresident one-tag and two-tag antlerless deer and antelope licenses.

The current fee for a nonresident one-tag antlerless deer or antelope license is $150, which is the same for a nonresident two-tag antlerless deer or antelope license. Fees for these licenses would be made more comparative under the proposal, which would change the nonresident one-tag antlerless deer or antelope license to $50, and change the two-tag licenses to $75.

“More antlerless deer harvest is needed in South Dakota, and reducing fees for antlerless nonresident licenses should help with the sale of these licenses,” said Game Fish and Parks Game Management Specialist Ron Fowler.
