GF&P Proposes More Elk Licenses, But Majority Would Be Antlerless Tags

Officials from the Game, Fish, and Parks Department are proposing to nearly double the amount of elk licenses available in the Black Hills. However, according to the Rapid City Journal article, most of the new licenses would be antlerless-only tags. This proposal is the result of the department determining that the elk herds require more culling to keep their growing numbers in check.
