Proposed Bill Tightens Residency For Hunting, Fishing Licenses

(Pierre, SD) — A proposed bill that could tighten residency for hunting and fishing licenses in South Dakota is going to be discussed today. SB-54 is a priority for the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources committee Tuesday. The change states if a South Dakota resident lives outside the state for more than half or one-hundred-80 days of a calendar year, they no longer qualify for a resident hunting or fishing license. It would not change the 90-consecutive day residency requirement still needed.
