House Bills: 

HB 1034 revise certain youth hunting requirements. Changes the age definition for youth from 16 to 18, No action scheduled

HB 1036 correct technical errors in certain code cross-references regarding the Department of Game, Fish and Parks. SDWF-Camo will monitor No action scheduled.

HB1042 revise certain provisions regarding riparian buffer strips. It appears it changes some criteria SDWF-Camo will monitor No action scheduled.

HB1047 provide limited deer and antelope licenses to landowners. GFP is supporting the ability of Non-Res landowners to get up to 2 tags for their land, as long as they own a min. of 160 ac, these proposed tags are good for only on their own land. The problem is last year 10,000 residents didn’t get their first choice of ER deer, and with an additional possibility of 8,000 more tags where do you think the number will be cut from? No action scheduled.

Senate Bills:

SB 72 revise notification requirements for listing and delisting species on the threatened and endangered species list. If passed would allow a rule to be placed to allow SDWF-Camo will monitor No action scheduled
