Wow, a little upset. The "don't like it, go hunt another somewhere else" comment possibly the most worn out comment on these forums. Maybe you missed this part of my post "They are caving to a group of residents who feel there are too many NR, which fine if you want less NR then do your share to make up for the loss income. " If R don't want NR to come to the state that's their choice and they vote for the officials that make that choice. But don't tell me one thing when it's pretty obvious it's another. As I stated be prepared to make up for that loss income, I'm sure you will be and even a small group of other people will too will be happy to do that but the majority will not. I also never said anything about SD owing me or anyone which you seem to come out of no where with that. If they really wanted to "manage the heard" they would start with the R and NR rifle tags which they did make changes to but not a reduction. But no them darn NR archery hunters are killing all the deer. I'm perfectly fine with change, reductions, price increases, etc, that's nothing new to me. Just don't lie to me about what the reason is and make it sound like I have it sooo good.Why should SD be so unique in what they offer? No other state allows what we do and making changes is in order. Don't like it? Hunt somewhere else. Or stay home and yell at your computer screen.
SD will still allow an OTC archery deer tag to non-residents with a little planning. Sorry we don't give you everything you believe we owe you. It is still a really nice opportunity.
In case you didn't notice the changes to deer hunting in SD involve residents as well and will into the future.
