RAPID CITY — The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission finalized its elk management plan last week following what officials say was a pretty quiet month for public comment.

In July Andy Lindbloom, senior big game biologist presented the plan to the commission and kicked off a month-long public comment period. On Wednesday John Kanta, terrestrial section chief for the GF&P said there were very few submitted comments that actually related to the plan itself. Most comments, he said, related to the U.S. Forest Service management plan or cattle raising and forage.
