RESIDENTS

One of the following licenses would qualify a resident to hunt small game on shooting preserves for the calendar year:

  • Resident Small Game License ($33.00),
  • Resident Combination License - small game and fishing ($55.00),
  • Resident 1-Day Small Game License ($12.00),
  • Resident Youth Small Game Licenses - ages of 12 through 15 years ($5.00), or
  • Resident Junior Combination License for fishing, small game, and trapping - ages 16 through 18 years ($27.00).

    A license purchased for the year 2014 will be valid through 1/31/2015 and a 2015 license can be purchased on 12/15/2014 and is valid through 1/31/2016.

NONRESIDENTS

Nonresident Shooting Preserve licenses:

  • One Day Preserve License - $46.00

  • Five Day Preserve License (five consecutive days) - $76.00

  • Annual Preserve License - $121.00

Any of the above three licenses are valid on shooting preserve acres for those bird species listed on the operators' permit, or Nonresident Small Game License - $121.00 or a $10.00 Nonresident Youth Small Game (ages 12-15). The Nonresident Small Game licenses will be valid off the preserve during the regular season for the species to be hunted, for the two periods of five consecutive days selected by the hunter.

Either of these two nonresident licenses or the Annual Preserve License purchased for the year 2014 will be valid on preserve acres through 1/31/2015 and a 2015 license can be purchased on 12/15/2014 and is valid through 1/31/2016.

NONRESIDENT YOUTH (12-15)

Nonresidents who are at least 12 years of age, or will turn 12 by December 31, may apply for or buy licenses and may hunt in any open season beginning September 1. Non-residents younger than 12 cannot hunt in South Dakota.

To buy a license, nonresidents under 16 need a copy of their hunter safety certificate or a copy of a previous hunting license issued to them from any other state.
