SCDNR wants to know your opinion of Sunday hunting on WMAs

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), in coordination with Clemson University, is currently evaluating options for Sunday hunting on Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) in South Carolina.

Anyone with an interest in Sunday hunting on WMAs is encouraged to participate in a statewide survey and/or attend a public listening session in July 2021.

The survey will allow SCDNR to assess the public opinions and attitudes towards the potential of opening WMAs to Sunday hunting.

The survey must be completed in one session and should take no longer than 10-12-minutes. The survey will be available until July 28, 2021 at 5 p.m.
