GFP Commission Rejects Petition for Change in Custer State Park Elk Hunting Season Drawing





GFP Commission Rejects Petition for Change in Custer State Park Elk Hunting Season Drawing

WATERTOWN, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission rejected a petition to add a separate drawing for Custer State Park elk hunting applicants over 70 years of age.  

The proposal originated via the public petition process and suggested that hunters over the age of 70, who had a summed total of age and preference points over 100, would be included in a special drawing prior to the regular license drawing.

In 2019, nearly 9,000 hunters applied for the eight any-elk licenses offered in Custer State Park.
