41-6-19.8. Resident antlerless deer licenses restricted to farm or ranch lands owned or leased by license holder. In addition to any deer license authorized pursuant to § 41-6-19.3 or any other provision of law, in areas designated by the Department of Game, Fish and Parks, any farmer or rancher who is a resident of South Dakota and who owns and operates or leases and operates, for agricultural purposes, at least one hundred sixty acres of land may apply for and receive two antlerless deer licenses free of charge for use as provided in this section during the west river prairie deer season, east river deer season, or other deer season set by the commission pursuant to § 41-2-18. The five-dollar surcharge established pursuant to § 41-2-34.2 does not apply to the licenses provided for in this section. The licenses may only be used in areas designated by the department on lands owned or leased by the farmer or rancher within any unit for the specified hunting season. Not more than two such licenses may be issued for use on any single farm or ranch. Upon receipt of an application prescribed by the Department of Game, Fish and Parks that meets the requirements of this section, the department shall issue two antlerless deer licenses that restrict the holder to the taking of the big game animals as designated on the license only from the farm or ranch lands owned or leased by the farmer or rancher. The license does not authorize the holder of the license to take any big game animal from land owned or leased by other persons.
