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.

Tom Kirschenmann is the department’s chief of terrestrial resources. He says the state wants to make sure the public has ample time to comment as the comprehensive plan is important to many hunters and ranchers.
