PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department is extending the public comment period on its proposed 5-year elk management plan.

Wildlife officials have pushed the deadline to Feb. 6. The proposal goes over how the state wants to manage the big game species associated with the state’s diverse habitats and land ownership.
