    Blaze Orange Vest?

    New Unit in South Dakota

    I see that there's a new Prairie Elk unit open in South Dakota for this year. All of Harding County comprises unit 35 for prairie elk with a whopping 76 day season. Sept 15 to Oct 31, and Dec 1 to Dec 31. Eight tags to the lucky drawers. Sounds like a great hunt for someone!
