The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has proposed a slight reduction in licenses for the 2013 Spring Prairie Turkey Season.

The commission has recommended a reduction in one-tag “male” turkey licenses by 105 and reduce the two-tag “any turkey” licenses by 200 compared to 2012.

The commission also is proposing 10 resident archery turkey licensees for the Blood Run Nature Area and 10 resident archery licensees to hunt at the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve through the issuance of “access permits” via a lottery drawing.

A modification of the spring unit boundaries for the Black Hills and 49A to be consistent with the fall turkey unit boundaries was also proposed.

The proposals will be finalized at the Dec. 6-7 GFP meeting at the Pierre Ramkota.

To comment, email with your name and city.  You can also comment in person at the December meeting.  Proposals will begin at 2 p.m., CST on Thursday, Dec. 6.
