South Carolina Wildlife Partnership (SCWP) will provide additional lottery-based hunting opportunities to eligible individuals and/or parties that are not selected for this South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) lottery hunt. SCDNR will provide a list of non-selected individuals and parties to SCWP after the SCDNR lottery draw has occurred. Inclusion in or selection for SCWP hunts will not impact selection or preference points in any SCDNR lottery and operates independently of SCDNR. You must apply for the SCDNR Turkey Lottery and Opt-in for SCWP for an opportunity to be selected for a SCWP turkey hunt.


In addition to the required hunting license, big game permit, and WMA permit, all turkey hunters, including youth, are required to have turkey tags in possession while hunting. Tags may be purchased on-line, by phone or at license vendors and will be mailed beginning in mid-February. Tags will also be available over the counter at SCDNR regional offices starting in late February.
