PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An eight-year veteran conservation officer with the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department is being honored as the state’s wildlife officer of the year.

Evan Meyer has been presented with that honor from the Shikar-Safari Club International, a private conservation group.

Meyer has been stationed in Howard since 2008. The department says he was nominated for the award for his “professionalism, excellence and high standards.”

Jeremy Roe is a state district conservation officer supervisor. He says Meyer consistently goes above and beyond his normal duties by serving as a hunting incident investigator, background investigator and firearms instructor.

Each year, the conservation group sponsors an award for the wildlife officer of the year in all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces.
