  About Us




South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks

South Dakota does have a lottery draw. We do not have landowner tags that can be sold to clients. You have to put in for a license. We will assist you through the application process.

For rifle deer: There are two separate drawings. The West River Special Buck drawing is usually due mid-April. This drawing is a private-land only tag and good for either species. You will be contacted with instructions to apply ahead of time. The Regular Season draw is usually due around mid-July. This drawing is unit specific and species specific. You will be contacted with instructions to apply ahead of time if you were unsuccessful in the Special Buck drawing.

If you are wanting to hunt mule deer and then whitetail on a trophy fee basis, you must first draw a mule deer tag in either drawing. We then have to wait until the third round of the Regular Season draw to put in for a whitetail tag. Some years there are leftover whitetail tags in certain units.

For archery deer: Licenses are unlimited, but you still have to apply. Again, we will send instructions.

For turkeys: The drawing is usually due mid-February. More than likely you will not draw a license on the first round. You will then put in during the third drawing, or obtain a leftover license. Many times there are still leftover licenses during season. We will send instructions on how and when to apply.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to let us know!
