Waterfowl Lottery Applications Available Until Oct. 15 at 5:00 pm
If you have not applied yet, there is only one week left to submit an application for the SCDNR waterfowl lottery hunts. Applications will be accepted until Oct. 15 at 5 p.m.
A non-refundable fee of $20 per hunter is required on each application for the Multi-site Waterfowl Lottery Hunt and $5 per youth applicant for the Youth Multi-site Waterfowl Hunt. Youth must be 17 years of age or younger to apply for the youth hunt.
After the selection process occurs, the primary applicant (only) will receive email notification of the drawing’s completion.
Additional Opportunities for Lottery Hunt Applicants
Applicants for both the Waterfowl Multi-Site and Youth Multi-Site Lottery Hunts also have the ability to opt-in for second chance waterfowl hunting opportunitiesbeing offered by private landowners.
There is no additional cost to the applicant and SCDNR preference points are not affected by any second chance draw hunt opportunity offered by the South Carolina Wildlife Partnership (SCWP) or the Pintail Partners (for youth hunters).
You must apply for the SCDNR waterfowl lottery hunt to participate in any second chance hunt opportunity and complete the opt-in form so that your information can be sent for the second chance drawing. Selecting to purchase a preference point only will not enter you into the second chance hunt.
