SD panel proposes changes in waterfowl seasons
PIERRE (AP) -- The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has proposed some changes for this fall's duck and goose hunting seasons.
Proposed changes for the duck season include increasing the daily limit for scaup from four to six, and increasing the possession limit for ducks, coots and mergansers from two times the daily limit to three times the daily limit.
Proposed changes for the goose season include increasing the daily limit for Canada geese from three to five, and increasing the daily limit for white-fronted geese from one to two. The possession limit for geese also would be changed from two times the daily limit to three times the daily limit.
The commission will finalize the waterfowl seasons at a meeting that will be held Aug. 1-2 in Watertown.
