House Bills: 

HB 1059 revise certain provisions regarding hunting with drones. SDWF supports, brings the use of drones into alignment with federal laws. We would like to see the time period when drones cannot be used for hunting predators extended to cover all open big game seasons, but it is not in the bill. House Ag 2/06 7:45 AM., Rm 414, http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1059&Session=2020

HB 1111 revise provisions regarding the qualifications to serve on the Game, Fish and Parks Commission. SDWF monitoring, if passed it would require each Commission candidate to show proof of criteria to serve as a Commissioner. No hearing scheduled http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1111&Session=2020

HB 1181 revise certain provisions regarding bounties for coyotes. SDWF monitoring No hearing Scheduled http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1181&Session=2020

HB 1184 provide limited deer and antelope licenses to landowners. SDWF opposes this bill. While we sympathize with nonresident landowners, this bill gives guaranteed any deer tags and free doe tags to nonresident landowners and their families. This bill could potentially remove thousands of deer and antelope tags from the pool of licensees now currently available, including those that go to resident landowners No hearing scheduled http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1184&Session=2020

HB 1200 establish dates for the mowing of ditches on the state trunk highway system. SDWF is monitoring. No hearing scheduled http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1200&Session=2020

HB 1236 revise provisions regarding the management of the animal damage control program. SDWF is monitoring, No hearing scheduled http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1236&Session=2020

Senate Bills:

SB 75 provide for a habitat stamp on hunting and fishing licenses. SDWF supports, and has been working on the language of this bill with the sponsor and support the bill in its current form. Hearing; Passed Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources, to full Senate http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=75&Session=2020

SB 79 modify provisions regarding the building of fences across certain unimproved highways SDWF is strongly opposed. The proposed change in current law appears to be an attempt by an organization of landowners and outfitters to prevent the hunting of small game and waterfowl on roads which by definition are currently considered to be improved. The change will not necessarily stop public travel, but will serve to close off hundreds of miles of section line roads to the hunting of small game and waterfowl. The change would also encourage the destruction of grassland habitat and prevent what is currently lawful hunting and trapping of nest predators and coyotes. Hearing 2-12-20,  745am Senate Local Gov., RM 412 Action alert sent earlierhttp://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=79&Session=2020

Legislative Daily Update: Day 13 of 37

Brought to you by SDWF Camo-Coalition

PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO SEND EMAIL TO Senate Local Govt. and ask them to vote NO on SB 79, as per action alert sent on Monday.

SB 75 passed Senate Ag on a vote of 8 to 0 in favor, it will move to the floor now where it will need a 2/3 vote to pass the floor due to the fees.

SB 150 was introduced with GFP and the Gov.’s office support to turn all NR waterfowl Lic. To 2 5 day Lic. Instead of one 10 day. If passed could double the amount of NR pressure if they come back again, today the avg. is 5 days hunted on a 10 day Lic.
