Prescribed Burns to be Done Today in Sully County

Grass Fire


PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The Game, Fish and Parks Department will hold two prescribed burns today in Sully County. The first grass burn off will be at Koenig Game Production Area in west central Sully County next to the river.  It will start about 11:00 a.m. this morning and should be done by noon.  The burn is being done to rejuvenate a stand of warm season native grasses.

If things go well with that burn, a second prescribed burn will be in the Hofer Game Production Area, in east central Sully County, about 14 miles east and three north of Onida.  If this burn is done, it should start around mid-afternoon and will be complete within an hour.  The Hofer Game Production Area burn is planned to convert a stand of evasive grasses to native grass.
