PIERRE, S.D – The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission has voted to increase the daily bag limit for pheasant preserve operators.
The previous limit of 15 rooster pheasants will increase to 20 from Sept. 1 to the end of the regular pheasant season. The preserve limit will be 15 roosters from then until the end of the preserve season.
In winter months, wild pheasants congregate in prime habitat. Noting that prime habitat often is on preserves, the Commission voted to reduce the limit during those months.
The Commission also voted to increase the price of the tags that operators use to mark birds as being shot on preserves. The five-cent adhesive tags were raised to 25 cents. Preserve operators are required to mark birds shot on their property and keep detailed records of the numbers of pen-raised and wild birds that are shots on preserves.
Preserve operators will also be able to apply for three-year permits to do business. Until now, they had to obtain annual licenses from the GFP.
The new preserve rules are pending a review by the Legislative Rules Review Committee. The earliest they can be enacted is mid-September.
