Commission proposes adjustments for bighorn sheep auction tag license

PIERRE – The South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks (GFP) Commission proposed to remove the November 1 deadline for nonprofit groups to submit an application letter for the opportunity to auction the bighorn sheep auction tag license.

The commission proposal would allow the commission to establish a new date to allow flexibility in conjunction with the bighorn sheep auction.

The Commission also proposed to allow the bighorn sheep auction license to be valid in both Custer County and the Badlands hunting units.

To comment in person, the public hearing will be held June 6 at 2 p.m. CDT in Pierre. Individuals can comment online at or mail them to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501. To be included in the public record and to be considered by the Commission, comments must include a full name and city of residence.
