HC resident deer hunters will receive two (2) individual antler-free tags free of charge as part of their basic set of deer tags. In addition, all hunters can purchase up to 4 individual wood-free tags ($5 each for residents and $10 each for non-residents). The following play area and WMA restrictions include the 2 free base tags combined with additional individual wood-free tags purchased: In 2022, Wisconsin`s DNR will no longer produce individual regulations for small game, deer and migratory birds. Instead, these species, along with bears and moose, will be included in a combined regulatory brochure. Deer quotas are issued to qualified landowners or tenants throughout the state who complete and submit an application with a $50 fee by July 1. This program is generally best suited for landowners or tenants with large acreage. Under the QPP, a quota of antlerless deer tags is allocated to a specific parcel of land based on criteria such as: local deer population density, condition of local deer population, property size, presence of agricultural or agricultural damage, and the owner`s overall deer management objectives. QPP participants also have the opportunity to receive a timber quota. Dollar rates are based on the average number of hectares per male harvested as reported by program participants in the county in recent years.

The possession of detached head deer during transport from the place of killing is prohibited (50-11-400). Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a fatal neurological disease of deer (deer family) that poses a significant risk to deer in North America. To protect against the spread of CWD in SC, the following rules apply: No person shall import or possess a whole carcass or part of a carcass from an infected State, except that quarters or other parts of meat without part of the vertebral column or head may be imported; boneless meat; headless skin; clean (no meat or tissue) the skull or skull plates with attached antlers; wood (detached from the skull plate); Clean the upper canines, also called “bugle”, “whistler” or “ivory”; and finished taxidermy heads. Hunters travelling elsewhere should check with the wildlife authority in their destination state to determine CWD status and any restrictions the state may have on carcass movement. CWD has been diagnosed in 30 states and 4 Canadian provinces. For an up-to-date list of these locations, see www.dnr.sc.gov/wildlife. (Reg. 123-54).

It is illegal to hunt, shoot or kill a deer in any way from a motorboat, raft or other means of transport by water, or to harass a deer while part of the deer is in the water (50-11-730). It is illegal to hunt deer with a firearm within three hundred metres of a residence if it is within ten feet of the ground without the permission of the owner and the resident. The provisions of this section do not apply to an owner who hunts on his own land or to a person who fishes on the basis of a permit from the Ministry. It is illegal to keep deer in cold stores or cold storage unless the carcass is clearly marked with the hunter`s name, address and hunting licence number (50-11-1700). This does not apply to storage in a private home or to deer where a hunter`s personal tag remains attached to the thigh tendon because the tag identifies the hunter. Processors do not accept unmarked deer; However, you are not responsible for missing information on a deer tag, such as notches, markings, etc. The deer tag can be removed by the processor as soon as treatment begins or the deer is quartered. Processors are encouraged to report marking violations to SCDNR law enforcement.

Deer processors must recognize that it is illegal to sell deer meat in order to recover deer handling fees not collected by the owner (50-11-1910). The best course of action is to take a deposit for treatment service if deer are left at the facility. If the meat is not picked up by the owner, it can be given free of charge to another person. In play area 1, only three (3) individual wood tags will be valid on private or WMA land starting October 1st. In play zones 2, 3 and 4, individual wood-free tags are valid from September 15 on private or WMA land. In total, no more than five (5) individual wood-free tags may be used on private fields in play area 2 and on all DMAs in play areas 2, 3 and 4. All wood-free individual tags can be used on private land in play areas 3 and 4. Individual antler-free tags are not valid for properties registered under the antlerless deer quota program. The tags do not change the daily or seasonal pocket limits for play areas, nor the type of weapon allowed. Labels may only be owned or used by the person whose name appears on the label.

The use of wood-free DQP labels is subject to the following restrictions. In Game Zone 1, tags come into effect on October 1st. In game zones 2, 3 and 4, tags are valid from September 15. Markings issued for a given piece of land may only be used in that area and must be used for all deer (without antlers and/or antlers) for which a quota has been issued. Tags do not change the use of weapons during special weapon seasons. Statewide, play zones and daily limits do not apply to properties registered in the DQP because the boundary is on the property, not on the people suing the property. At the end of the season, a harvest report must be completed by the applicant. A deer with antlers is defined as a deer with antlers 2 inches or more above the hairline. An antlerless deer is defined as a antlerless deer or a deer with less than two inches of wood visible above the hairline. Antlerless deer cannot be possessed, hunted, shot or killed in any way, except during special seasons or with special permission (50-11-410).

In play areas 1 and 2, it is forbidden to follow deer with dogs (50-11-310). Natural commercial deer urine products are made from urine collected from deer in other states, many of which have been diagnosed with CWD. The agent of CWD can be found in deer urine. The distribution of this urine can contaminate the environment. For this reason, no person may possess or use substances or material that contain or purport to excrete a deer, including urine, feces, blood, glandular oil or any other bodily fluid, for the purpose of collecting, attracting or exploring wildlife in SC. This does not preclude the use of synthetic products or substances collected by a hunter of deer legally caught in SC (Reg. 123-54). Archery, muzzle magazines, crossbows and pneumatic weapons are allowed during gun hunting. Printed copies will be sent to all successful applicants for the wolf hunting licence. Labels are available at the counter at SCDNR`s offices in Clemson, Charleston, Conway, West Columbia (Farmer`s Market), Florence & York or on the following website: GoOutdoorsSouthCarolina.com. A handwritten request can be obtained on applications, by calling NRDS at 803-734-3886 or dnr.sc.gov/regs/pdf/speciallicenseapp.pdf Resident and non-resident hunters have the opportunity to participate in the Antlerless Deer Medal Individual Program and the Deer Quota Program.
