2019 Public Drawing Deer Hunts

Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., Thursday, August 15, 2019.

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is now accepting applications for deer lottery hunts on public lands through August 15, 2019. New this year, we will begin offering an “unrestricted” multi-site lottery. The “unrestricted” multi-site lottery application will cover hunting opportunities on Bear Island, Donnelley and Bonneau Ferry WMA with no antler restrictions at these sites. As this is a new opportunity, each applicant will begin with 0 preference points and accrue preference points in the “unrestricted” multi-site lottery if they are not selected. The traditional multi-site lottery, for properties with antler restrictions, will continue to operate and accrue preference points as before. These lotteries will operate independently and maintain separate preference points.
