Landowner Programs

Landowner and Habitat Programs

South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks values and appreciates the partnerships we have with landowners across the state. They help sustain our wildlife and promulgate our hunting heritage. South Dakota is 80 percent privately owned and landowners play a significant role in providing wildlife habitat and outdoor opportunities like hunting and fishing. Click to Expand

The department offers a variety of programs available for private landowners to help create wildlife habitat, public hunting access, and reduce wildlife damage.

For more information about landowner programs, check out Habitat Pays. Habitat Pays is an effort to connect farmers and ranchers to the appropriate habitat resources and help them implement wildlife habitat where it makes the most sense to do so.
