South Dakota Game, Fish, and Park address turkey shooting in Stanley County

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- Could Stanley County be getting a fall turkey hunting season this year?  That question is being considered by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission.  Wildlife Program Administrator Andrew Norton says adding Stanley County to the fall turkey season is just one of the changes officials are looking at.

The other two proposed administrative rule changes relate to essentially style and form changes to create consistency with unit and county identification.  Norton says they are looking for the fall turkey season to run from November 1st to the end of the year.

Norton says the draw structure for license would be similar to previous years, with at the main changes coming to weapon restrictions.

Finalization is expected at the G-F-and-P Commission’s July meeting.
