South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Commission to consider fee increases

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission is considering increases to nonresident hunting and state park entrance fees.

Commission members are meeting in Madison Thursday to vote on the proposals.

Various nonresident small game and waterfowl hunting fees would increase by as much as $15. The changes are expected to generate and additional $1.1 million in revenue for the state in 2013.

Another proposal would bump the cost of an annual park license by $2 to $30 per vehicle. The fee for a second vehicle would go up $1 to $15.

Group lodging fees at Mina Lake, Shadehill, Lake Thompson, Palisades and Newton Hills would also increase.
