PIERRE, S.D.—The Rapid City Outdoor Campus is still in the early planning stages, but the work has already begun on ensuring that it’s well-stocked.

The campus, a project of the Wildlife Division of the S.D. Game, Fish and Parks Department, recently received $1,000 worth of equipment from the S.D. Conservation Officer Association. The equipment was presented to the GFP Commission at its June meeting in Pierre by C.O. Association representative Casey Griffith of Onida.

The money was raised through the sale of raffle tickets that had a top prize of a buffalo hunt on the Turner Ranch. The raffle, a fundraiser to enhance an existing scholarship presented by the association, was set up with a series of incentives available to the C.O.s and their agents who sold the tickets.

When the raffle was complete, $600 worth of incentives were donated back to the association. An addition $100 Cabela’s gift card came from a C.O. who had received it from an out-of-state hunter but believed that he could not accept such a gratuity.

Purchases for the Rapid City Outdoor Campus were made during a Cabela’s promotion that offered discounts to law enforcement and emergency services personnel. Consequently, $700 worth of donations resulted in $1,000 worth of equipment for the campus.

The C.O.s made their purchases based on recommendations from the Sioux Falls Outdoor Campus and the Rapid City GFP staff. The donation included:
• Five BB/pellet gun combinations.
• 12,000 BBs.
• 14 fishing rods.
• Two nine-quart Dutch ovens.
• Two pop-up hunting blinds.
• Two turkey decoys.
