SD Panel Increases Hunting, Fishing, Camping Fees



PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – A South Dakota commission has approved plans to boost the cost of hunting and fishing licenses as well as the charges for camping at state campgrounds.

The state Game, Fish and Parks Commission has voted unanimously to approve the license and fee increases.

The cost of an annual fishing license for a South Dakota resident will increase from $25 to $28. The annual resident small-game hunting license would rise from the current $30 to $33, and a combination license allowing both hunting and fishing would increase from $50 to $55.

Resident deer and antelope licenses will rise by $4.

Camping fees also would increase slightly, with most campsites costing only a few dollars more per night.

Non-resident annual fishing licenses will rise from $60 to $67.
