PIERRE, S.D. - Hunters who may have found their East River deer hunt cut short by the recent weather conditions can find solace in the extended antlerless hunting opportunities that are still available.

The regular East River deer season concluded on Sunday, Dec. 4. However, the season continues from Dec. 5 - 11 for antlerless deer licenses. A second deer season extension will then occur once again for antlerless deer on Jan 1-8, 2006. Those hunters with "any deer" tags will be allowed to take any antlerless deer during the season extensions. Those with an "any whitetail deer" tag will be allowed to take an antlerless whitetail.

Hunters wishing to obtain one of the remaining deer licenses can submit an application, either paper through the mail or online by computer, to the Game, Fish and Parks License Office. They also have the option of submitting an application online, choosing an option to print a receipt of the license and then picking up their tags from a designated license agent.

"The season extension is part of the original season structure for the East River deer season and is intended to facilitate the harvest of doe deer to help manage herd numbers," said GFP Communications Manager Chuck Schlueter.

Licenses remain for the East River deer season and may be purchased through the end of the season extension. Information on leftover licenses and license applications are available from the GFP website at
