September 25, 2014Waterfowl hunt application process is now open
The application for waterfowl hunts on Category I Waterfowl Management Areas is now available on the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website. In an effort to minimize costs and administration and to become more efficient, interested hunters will be required to apply and pay online.
If you are an existing DNR customer, and cannot find your record when you attempt to apply, please call Patty Castine at (803) 734-3609. Please do not create a duplicate account for you or anyone else on your application.
This new system has been very effective and additional changes to minimize confusion and reduce the “steps” required will be implemented. “In addition to simplifying the application process, we are working to establish a site where applicants can go to determine their selection status and to access and print the permit and hunt instructions,” said Derrell Shipes who supervises the Lottery Hunt System. These changes will not occur until after the current hunt season.
The changes made over the last several years have improved the efficiency and minimized the mistakes that occurred in the past. Hunters will not receive blank applications or reminders in the mail for this hunt.
