PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota wildlife officials say hunters should remember that it is illegal to use bait stations and salt licks to attract game animals.

The state Game, Fish and Parks Department says regulations prohibit the use of food or salt to entice big game.

Wildlife officials say a bait station is define as any location where grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, hay, minerals or other food and by-products are placed specifically to attract big game animals for hunting purposes. The use of scents alone does not constitute a bait station.

The bait station ban runs from Aug. 15 through Feb. 1, and from March 15 through May 1.
