Comments due to SDGFP on Draft Prairie Grouse Management Plan

April 10th

The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) is seeking comments on the draft “Prairie Grouse Action Plan for South Dakota, 2023-2027.”
All individuals interested in prairie grouse management in South Dakota may provide suggestions and comments on the revised plan in its current form– until April 10, 2023.

 By “Prairie grouse”  GFP means sharp tailed grouse and greater prairie chicken.  Greater sage grouse have their own management plan. Other birds with management plans are the least tern, piping plover, bald eagle, pheasant, Canada goose and wild turkey. These are or were threatened and endangered species or are hunted species. There is also a  2005 “All Bird Conservation Plan”

SD’s final and draft wildlife and bird management plans can be found online at: https://gfp.sd.gov/management-plans/. ,

Written comments on the plan can be sent to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, S.D. 57501, or emailed to prairiegrouseplan@state.sd.us.

SDGFP announcement says the comments must be received by the deadline (4/10/23) and include your full name and city of residence. We are not sure if the deadline is close of business (COB) on  April 10th  or midnight Central Time, if we find out we will post it here. Midnight would be logical, but it would be safe to use COB.
