Free Hunting Days

December 24, 2012

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has announced a new free hunting program. The DNR’s first annual free hunting days will be January 4-5, 2013. Free hunting days allow all South Carolina residents to hunt without a state hunting license or other required permits, to include Wildlife Management Area (WMA) permit, or Migratory Waterfowl Permit (formerly State Duck Stamp). It is important to note that Free Hunting Days are offered by the State of South Carolina and do not waive any Federal requirements for a Federal Migratory Bird Hunting & Conservation Stamp (Federal Duck Stamp) to hunt migratory waterfowl.
Free hunting days are available only to SC residents and apply to all lands in which hunting is allowed, to include private lands and Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) throughout that state that are not otherwise closed to hunting. The list of open WMAs can be found by visiting the Managed Lands tab of the DNR website. Please note that all existing seasons, bag limits and methods of take still apply so check the 2012-2013 Rules and Regulations for more information.
