Deer lottery applications available for SC hunters


Apply for deer lottery hunts through Aug. 15

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is now accepting applications for 2024 deer lottery hunts (adult and youth) on public lands through Aug. 15.

The Multi-site, Unrestricted Multi-site, Webb Gun, Webb Archery, and South Fenwick Archery lotteries operate independently and maintain separate preference points. Youth deer lotteries do not utilize preference points.

The “unrestricted” multi-site lottery application will cover hunting opportunities on Bear Island, Bonneau Ferry, Donnelley, and Ramsey Grove with no antler restrictions at these sites.

The multi-site lottery application includes Belfast WMA, Botany Bay WMA, Coosawhatchie HP/WMA, Hamilton Ridge WMA, Palachoucola WMA, and Wateree River Heritage Preserve. Antler restrictions apply to these locations.

For each deer lottery, applicants may choose up to 15 hunt site selections.

Youth age 10 – 17 are eligible to apply for the youth deer hunts. For youth only deer hunts, there is no application fee or license required (unless youth are 16 or 17) and these hunts are available at no cost to the participants. Youth who are 16 or 17 years of age are required to have a Junior Sportsman’s License at the time of the hunt.
