South Dakota considers changes to nonresident hunting regulations - posted 6 days ago

South Dakota hates nonresident hunters. These new rule changes make it clear. They only want you to hunt there state if you’re paying an outfitter. Half the state if you’re non resident you can only archery hunt. The other half of the state had half the units removed from nonresident archery and a drawl must be done to obtain a rifle tag. Also they shorten the application period only for nonresident ONLY IF HUNTING PUBLIC GROUND. They also won’t allow any nonresident to hunt PUBLIC ground for the first month. If your hunting on private ground most these rules don’t apply. Clearly the state is promoting payed hunting. Looking way into the details South Dakota pulled a really slick move. South Dakota doesn’t allow any camping in the field, only on designated camping sites, South Dakota removed all the units around perrie from the archery tag so if you want to hunt anywhere you’re going to have to drive a minimum of an hour to get there.

New SD restrictions on moving elk and deer carcasses - posted 6 days ago

Slightly off topic but has anyone seen the new regulations on nonresident hunters in South Dakota? South Dakota isn’t a fan of nonresident hunters unless your paying an outfitter.
