Antelope and Coyote Hunting Changes for Custer State Park





Pierre, S.D. - The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission closed Custer State Park to antelope hunting for the 2017 hunting season due to decreased herd numbers from previous years while also taking into consideration the wildlife viewing opportunities for park visitors.

The Commission opened Custer State Park to hunt coyotes for any resident with a predator/varmint license, resident furbearer license, or any resident hunting license. All hunters are required to obtain a free access permit. Hunters also have to be a minimum of 200 yards from any roads or buildings within the park.
