South Dakota Deer Hunting Season

The South Dakota deer hunting season can’t come soon enough for some.

The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks Commission announced its decisions on the 2019-2010 deer hunting season dates, as well as a few adjustments to the hunting licenses and drawing system used by the state.

The season will begin with archery only on September 1, 2019, the Apprentice and Youth seasons on September 14, and National Wildlife Refuge Deer on October 16.

The rest of the varying hunting zones will start either November 1, November 16, or November 23, 2019.

Late season muzzleloader hunting starts December 1, 2019, and the East & West River Antlerless deer season begins on December 14, 2019. Most seasons end on January 1, 2019.

These changes are scheduled to be implemented for the 2019 deer hunting season as long as they’re approved by the legislative interim rules review committee.

The state GFP also approved a deer license allocation proposal that allows a resident hunter to apply for two of the six deer seasons in the first draw, including East River/Special Buck, West River/Special Buck, Black Hills, Muzzleloader, Refuge and Custer State Park.

Special Buck license holders are limited to one additional application in the first draw as long as that application was not valid for the same season as their Special Buck license.

This table shows the full details of the seasons available to deer hunters this coming fall. Keep in mind, the biggest changes include a change in application deadlines for the six firearm seasons; they would be mid-June. The special buck application deadline would remain mid-April.

Nonresident licenses make up eight percent of the allocation for West River, Black Hills and Refuge hunting seasons during the first drawing.

South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks also made a move to promote hunting within the younger generations, by deciding preference points for the combined deer drawings would be free to youth age 15 or younger.

If big game deer hunting licenses in South Dakota have been your target, get ready to aim true. This is what you’re working with for the next season.

Kentucky Man Finds Family of Bears Sitting in His Car

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/kentucky-man-finds-family-of-bears-sitting-in-his-car/

Facebook: Chad Morris
black bears

Sir, I’m going to need you to step out of the vehicle.

A Kentucky man was in disbelief last week when he saw when he saw what looked like a family of bears packing up for vacation.

Chad Morris, the owner of CMO BarberShop in Owensboro, Kentucky, was visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee, when he walked up on a black bear cub behind the wheel of his car. Then, to make matters worse, two more climbed in while the mother stood idly by.

In a Facebook post, he indicated that he thought he was being punked, as the whole situation seemed so ludicrous.

Is this real life.. tell me we are being punked 😳😳😳 🐻🐻🐻🐻 3 bear cubs in my car and the momma just lurking!! #Gatlinburg #Tennessee

Posted by Chad Morris on Thursday, May 16, 2019

“I was telling my friends, ‘I want to see a bear, I want to see a bear,’ you know?” Morris told WYMT.com. “Been lifting weights a little bit, want to see a bear tussle with the bear and it was like well, you get four on one. Now what do you want to do big boy? And I was like, ‘Nah, I’ll pass.'”

Morris was fortunate that the bears luckily didn’t cause all that much damage, although he will have to do some upholstery work waiting for him.

“You can see where the bear took a chunk out of the seat,” he said in the report. “Of course my cup was right in the middle and that’s where they got ahold of the cup.”

While this story is one Morris will surely never forget, he did learn a lesson, as now he always puts his windows up when he parks his car.

What would you do if you walked up to this scene unfolding in your car? I feel like there’s nothing to do except sit back and laugh, although that’s easy to say without bears in my car.

Wyoming Wildlife Crossing Funding Uncertain

Posted from: https://blog.eastmans.com/wyoming-wildlife-crossing-funding-uncertain/

When we think of wildlife crossings over or under highways most folks think in terms of saving animals from running a gauntlet of passenger cars, SUV’s, pickups and semi-trucks. However, there is more to the picture. Vehicular collisions with wildlife results in costly property damage, obvious death or severe maiming of wildlife but can cause severe injury or even fatalities to the humans involved as well.

It is with all this in mind that Wyoming and other states have constructed safe passageways for wildlife in key migration and travel corridors throughout the West. In Wyoming alone collisions between animals and vehicles in areas where these crossings now exist have been greatly reduced, by as much as 90% in some locations. While that is a huge win for both Wyoming’s wildlife it’s also a victory for Wyoming motorists. However, funding for construction and maintenance of these crossings is a challenge.

Federal grants that provide funding for these projects often come with the stipulation that states provide some percentage of the project funding. Most often, at least for Wyoming, this percentage must be drawn from the WYDOT general fund and so lawmakers are looking to create alternate means of funding the Federally mandated percentages. There are some interesting proposals on the table from voluntary conservation stamps through fishing and hunting license sales to storage of spent fuel rods from nuclear reactors, as the Federal government pays billions to store these away from large population centers.

As it stands a separate fund has not been realized and with more crossings needed and current crossings in need of maintenance, Wyoming is doing its level best to be creative and find a solution to the current funding woes. Here’s to hoping we can drum up the money because the future of our wildlife is greatly enhanced by these strategic crossings.
