South Dakota Second Deer Draw Applications Now Being Taken

Applications are now being accepted for the second draw for South Dakota’s East River, West River, and Refuge Deer Seasons.

Paper applications must be postmarked by July 17, and online applications are due July 22, 8 a.m. CDT.

If you are applying via paper application, and you have not already purchased a Habitat Stamp, you must purchase one (10$ resident, $25 nonresident) in addition to your application.

If you didn’t draw a deer license in the first drawing, you are eligible to apply for 2 of these seasons.

If you drew 1 deer license in the first drawing, you are eligible to apply for 1 of the seasons, not including the season you drew for.

Remember, Special Buck licenses count towards a license being held in that season.
