Lower Brule Indian Reservation

Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps

Starting with the 1995-96 season, the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe resumed issuing waterfowl stamps. According to the tribe, these stamps are required to be purchased by sportsmen prior to hunting waterfowl on the reservation. Printed on the reverse of each stamp is the statement: "It is unlawful to hunt waterfowl unless you sign your name in ink on the face of this stamp". It is known, however, that some hunters were not required to affix the stamps to their license during the 1995-96 season. 

Obviously, the tribe had sales to stamp collectors clearly in mind when these stamps were printed. The jumbo-sized stamps measure approximately 70 mm x 41 mm and they were issued in sheets of twenty (5x4) with a 12 mm selvage on all four sides. Plate numbers were printed on the selvage in the lower right comer of each sheet. The sheets were perforated 12 1/2 between the stamps and between the stamps and the selvage. For 1995-96, each stamp was printed in a different color. Subsequent issues were printed in multicolor. All stamps are serial numbered on the reverse.
