S.D. Admin. R. 41:06:03:06 - Identification required for transportation of big game animal - Exception

No person may possess in the field or transport a big game animal, except turkey, unless it is accompanied by the animal's lawfully tagged leg along with either the animal's head or a hind quarter with the visible external sex organs left naturally attached to it. Any person licensed to take "any deer," "any elk," or "any antelope" is exempt from transporting the animal's head or hind quarter if the lawfully tagged leg accompanies the animal for such license. However, the provisions of this section do not apply to a big game licensee who transports big game parts from the licensee's domicile to another location if the licensee possesses the big game tag or big game license entitling the licensee to the animal, or to big game that has been cooked or cured, by means other than freezing, for personal consumption.
