The South Dakota Public Hunting Atlas contains maps and information on South Dakota's Walk-In Areas, Game Production Areas (GPAs), Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs), some School Lands and some Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands. The atlas below comes out annually around the first part of August and is valid through May of the following year (through the spring turkey hunting season).
