The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission proposed to issue the same number of licenses for the upcoming 2010 Antelope Season as were sold in 2009, but the number of tags issued will be approximately 8,000 less than last year.

The Commission proposal will eliminate the three tag antelope license option that has been able the past two years. A total of 12,413 licenses will be available, with a vast majority of these licenses being two-tag licenses.

Residents who want to provide written comments on the Antelope Season proposal may do so until 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 7. Comments may be mailed to Game, Fish and Parks Commission, 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD, 57501, or e-mailed to wildinfo@state.sd.us . All comments must have the senders' full names and addresses in order to be included in the public record.

Comments may also be presented in person during the GFP Commission public hearing, which is scheduled for 2 p.m. CDT on Thursday, July 8th at the Ramkota Hotel in Pierre.
