We believe that GFP staff will be reporting on a survey they did in October , in cooperation with the BHNF,  looking to count beaver winter caches, so as to estimate the beaver population in the Black Hills.  They will also report on their otter survey. They will report on the Statewide Fish Management Plan Revision


Written comments can be submitted at https://gfp.sd.gov/forms/positions/. To be included in the public record of the next meeting, comments must include your complete name and city of residence and meet the submission deadline of seventytwo hours before the meeting (not including the day of the meeting) (Usually Sunday night before midnight CT or MT depending on time zone of physical meeting)  If you miss that deadline it goes to record of the next meeting (January Meeting).
You can testify at GFP meetings which are held in person and by Zoom, generally at 2 pm on the Thursday of the meeting, in time zone of the meeting. If there is rule finalization(s) you get 3 minutes per each rule you want to testify on. During the Open Forum, you get 3 minutes to testify on anything.

Unless you want to communicate directly with each Commissioner  (those comments will not be in the public record)–  https://gfp.sd.gov/commission/members/  (no deadline). You can see phones and home address at this link.  Here are likely e-mails for them.
The two new commissioners  e-mails likely are:
Jim.White@state.sd.us or James.White@state.sd.us, Bruce.Cull@state.sd.us
