MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department will have to reprint 250,000 hunting handbooks because of incorrect dates given for two seasons.

The Mitchell Republic (https://bit.ly/ZaUfU9 ) reports the mistake will cost about $32,500. The original handbooks showed incorrect dates for the hunting seasons for tundra swan and Unit 1 of Canada goose.

Emily Kiel is a spokeswoman for the department’s wildlife division. She says the department admits the internal oversight.

The handbooks are printed every year and contain South Dakota hunting laws and regulations.

By the time the mistake was caught, thousands of copies had already been delivered to major retailers in Mitchell, Rapid City and Sioux Falls. Kiel said the department has asked retailers to throw away the handbooks.

A new version should be out by Sept. 15.
