Depredation Permits

For further information on permits call 803-734-3887.

Request a permit from any SCDNR Wildlife Management or Law Enforcement office at no cost to the applicant. These permits are valid for 30 days, and are renewable if additional time is needed to alleviate the problem. Additional permits may be required when dealing with Federally-protected birds. A depredation permit is not required when capturing any nuisance furbearer or squirrel causing property damage within one-hundred yards of a home.
