PIERRE, S.D. - Game, Fish and Parks officials say all eligible South
Dakotans can apply for South Dakota's leftover antlerless elk licenses
without affecting their future eligibility. People who would be ineligible
for these licenses are those who were successful in the first 2005 elk
drawing and those who have had their hunting privileges revoked.

"Even if a person has had an elk license in one of these units in recent
years, he or she can still apply for these leftover antlerless tags," said
GFP License Supervisor Scott Simpson. "And, those who are successful will
still retain all their elk preference accrued to date." He explained that
preference only applies to an applicant's first choice in the season's first
drawing, and South Dakota's first elk drawing has passed for 2005."

Eligible applicants can apply for each of the three seasons, which include
Black Hills firearm elk, archery elk and prairie firearms elk. Applicants
must include the $5 application fee for each season for which they apply.

Simpson noted that the $105 license fee must also be included for this
drawing. "Second drawing elk applicants must also include one $105
antlerless license fee with their elk application(s)," he said. "Only one
$105 license fee is required, because a person can only have one South
Dakota elk license in a year. Thus, if a person applies for two antlerless
elk seasons, they will pay $10 in application fees and $105 in license fees
for a total of $115."

Those interested in viewing the list of leftover elk licenses, printing an
application or applying online should visit the GFP website at, hold their cursor over "Licenses
and Reservations" and click on the link of interest. Paper applications must
be postmarked no later than June 10. Online applicants have up to midnight
on Monday, June 13, to submit their electronic application. Residents who do
not already have a 2005 South Dakota elk license may submit one application
for each elk season.
