SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department says it will ask for an increase in several nonresident hunting license fees to bring in more than $1 million in additional revenue next year.
The proposal will be presented to the state Game, Fish and Parks commissioners in Deadwood on Thursday.
A nonresident 10-day small game license would increase by $10 to $120, while an annual shooting preserve license would go up by $10 to $95. Two nonresident shooting preserve licenses would go up $5, with a 1-day costing $40 and a 5-day costing $70.
Nonresident waterfowl licenses would go up $10, with a 10-day running $120 and a 3-day costing $85.
South Dakota’s hunting industry commonly draws outdoor enthusiasts from Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wyoming.
