Trapping equipment must be removed from public lands by May 12

The South Dakota Legislative Interim Rules Review Committee has rejected the rule amendment to allow trapping on public lands and improved road rights-of-ways beyond May 1. The Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission had previously adopted this extension in April.

Trappers must remove all traps, snares and associated trapping equipment from public lands and improved road rights-of-ways by May 12.

Trapping is allowed on private land with landowner permission at any time when a furbearer season is open.
