State: Ditches have mowing restrictions

The state departments of Game, Fish and Parks and Transportation are reminding residents that there are restrictions on mowing ditches along state roads.

The DOT allows landowners to mow only after July 10 in eastern South Dakota and after June 15 in Lyman, Gregory and Tripp counties. Mowing is always allowed in western South Dakota.

George Vandel is the GF&P's assistant wildlife director. "The mowing restriction is important for the state's pheasant population. On GF&P lands that are managed for wildlife, mowing is delayed until Aug. 1," he said.

"It is very important that birds nesting in roadside cover remain undisturbed. . . . I encourage all producers to delay their mowing as long as possible to give nesting hens a chance to hatch their broods."

People who have questions can call the GF&P at (605) 773-3381
