A second alligator-hunting seminar will be held Saturday (Aug. 20) at the University Center of Greenville, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources announced. The SCDNR session, held in partnership with the Clemson Extension Service, begins at 10 a.m. The two-hour seminar is for the public alligator hunt participants, hunting assistants and other interested persons.
The program will cover such topics as alligator capture and handling techniques, rules and regulations, alligator hunting equipment, processing, and other helpful information.
This is the second of three alligator-hunting seminars scheduled this month.
The final seminar will be held Aug. 27 at noon at Midlands Technical College’s Harbison Theatre in Lexington County.
Interested alligator hunting equipment manufacturers and retailers are invited to attend to display and demonstrate their equipment in conjunction with the seminars. However, the SCDNR does not endorse any type, brand, or make of such equipment.
Vendors should plan on bringing their own tables, set-ups or displays, as dedicated space or tables may not be available. On-premises sales are restricted at certain sites, and vendor space may be limited so all interested vendors should first check and pre-register with DNR at 803.734.3886.
