South Dakota plans to raise buffalo hunt fees
May 14, 2017
CUSTER, S.D. (AP) — Members of the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Commission have proposed increasing the amount hunters pay to hunt bison in Custer State Park.
The Black Hills Pioneer (http://bit.ly/2q5HGZ0) reported the commissioners proposed increasing the cost to hunt a trophy buffalo by $1,500, making the new fee $6,500. The cost to hunt a non-trophy bison bull would increase $1,000 to $3,250.
Nationwide, the average hunt price for a trophy bull hunt costs $6,300 so raising the Custer state Park hunt would fee would be in-line with the industry.
