Governor Noem Appoints Bruce Cull to Game, Fish and Parks Commission

Reappoints Travis Bies


PIERRE, S.D. – Today, Governor Krisi Noem announced that she will appoint Bruce Cull to serve on the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission. She also reappointed Travis Bies to serve another term on the GFP Commission.


“South Dakota’s natural wonder draws visitors from across the country, and it is our responsibility to preserve it for the next generation,” said Governor Noem. “Bruce understands this and will work to share South Dakota with the world today, while preserving our state’s beauty for tomorrow. I am excited to work with him in this new role.”


In 1999, Cull was elected president of the National Field Archery Association (NFAA). He worked to move the NFAA corporate headquarters to Yankton, South Dakota in 2008. He is currently the NFAA Foundation Chairman-President and Director of the NFAA Easton Yankton Archer Center. He currently serves on South Dakota Transportation Commission.


Cull was born in Yankton and raised in Springfield, South Dakota. He is an avid lifelong hunter. He graduated from the University of South Dakota at Springfield. Cull worked in the auto industry throughout the mid-1980s and started Dakota Archery and Outdoor Sports in 1985.


“I want to thank Governor Noem for the opportunity to serve on the Game, Fish and Parks Commission,” said Bruce Cull. “I have had so many wonderful experiences in the South Dakota outdoors, and I want to help others see all of the beauty that this state has to offer. I am eager to work with the governor and the entire GFP Commission.”
