  • New state rules for upcoming...

    S.C. hunters will see two big changes in regulations for the upcoming deer season.
    State game laws now require every deer harvested to be tagged at the point of kill with tags issued by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, according to Charles Ruth of the department’s Big Game Projects staff. In the past, some kills did not require tags.
    The other change is where you can get tags. You’ll no longer be able to get them from retail stores that sell hunting licenses. You will have to get them directly from DNR.
