Activated military personnel who drew elk license before activation
may receive elk license on return from active duty.
ENTITLED, An Act to
allow certain federally activated military personnel to be issued
replacement elk, bighorn sheep, or mountain goat hunting licenses.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
be amended by adding thereto a NEW SECTION to read as
Any member of the national guard or other reserve component of the armed forces of the
United States who was issued an elk, bighorn sheep, or mountain goat license pursuant to
19.6, but was ordered into active federal service in the armed forces of the United States before
the license could be used, may be issued a replacement license as provided in this section. After
the member has been released from active federal service, the member may request and shall be
issued the applicable replacement bighorn sheep, mountain goat, or elk license under the same or
substantially similar terms and conditions as those under which the original license was issued. The
replacement license shall be issued for the hunting season immediately following the member's
release from active federal service. However, if the release occurs during the hunting season, the
member may choose either to obtain the replacement license for the remainder of the current
season or to obtain the replacement license for use during the next succeeding full season. The
replacement license expires at the end of the season during which it is used.
