Public Drawing Hunts
The Public Drawing Hunts (PDH) program is one means by which the Wildlife Section of the SCDNR (South Carolina Department of Natural Resources) works to provide hunting opportunity to the general public. This program provides hunting opportunities to the public on lands mananged intensively for wildlife. The program has experienced growth since its inception with the addition of hunt sites, hunt dates, applicant numbers, and species hunted.
The PDH program is a multi faceted effort. The success of the PDH program lies in the ability of DNR staff to treat each applicant fairly and equitably without bias. The PDH program serves as a hunter recruitement and retention tool because the program provides a quality hunting experience for novice and seasoned hunters, both youth and adult, female and male on managed lands.
