The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has approved significant changes to a popular deer hunting license for 2013.
Hunters will only be able to possess either an East River or West River Special Buck License this year. Previously, a hunter could get both licenses.
The commission has set the level of resident licenses for East River Special Buck and the resident and nonresident West River Special Buck licenses at four percent of the total licenses allocated the previous year, which includes an “any deer” tag or a minimum of 500 licenses for that specific season, whichever is greater.
