DNR Announces New Hunting Site

As Turkey season has opened in South Carolina the state department of natural resources announces a new location for turkey hunting.  The department recently acquired Cliff Pitts Wildlife Management Area and the DNR says it is open for turkey hunting this spring.  The area is 509 acres and located along the Reedy River in Western Laurens County.  Gerald Moore of the South Carolina DNR says the area has a good turkey population. Turkey season opened April 1 and will remain open through May 1.  Hunting is allowed Monday through Saturdays only; hunting is not allowed on Sundays. The bag limit is two gobblers (male turkeys) per day and five per season, and all turkeys harvested must be tagged at the point of kill. Turkey tags are free and may be obtained at regional DNR offices and information distribution sites that were previously big game check stations.
