South Dakota Considers Special Landowner Licenses

From an Associated Press story in the Rapid City Journal:
_A bill that would give landowners special big-game licenses that they could use to sponsor hunters has received its first hearing in the South Dakota Legislature.

Sen. Julie Bartling of Burke says the measure would encourage hunting and help landowners who have problems with overpopulated deer herds.

Opponents say the measure would interfere with state game management and reduce the chances that some residents would draw licenses they want to hunt deer._

Good idea?
