PIERRE — The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GF&P) is extending the online application deadline for the East River, muzzleloader and refuge deer hunting seasons through 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9. "Hunters are used to being able to apply for these deer hunting seasons through Labor Day weekend. Many of them apply during the South Dakota State Fair at the GFP booth so we decided to extend the deadline to make sure hunters who have yet to apply for these seasons still have the time to do so," said Shon Eide, GF&P licensing supervisor. The previous deadline was set for Sept. 2.
