Attention

A South Carolina Hunting License is not provided by SCHC and will need to be purchased prior to your scheduled hunt. You may obtain your license and buck tags via the state website or by calling toll-free 1-866-714-3611.
NOTE:  If you are born after June 30, 1979, you must successfully complete a SCDNR-approved hunter education course and present the certificate of completion before a hunting or combination license can be obtained.   SCDNR does accept hunter education certifications issued by other states in the United States and Canadian provinces.

Rules and Procedures

GUESTS:

Guests of S~C~H~C* will observe the game laws of South Carolina. Guests violating game laws will be subject to prosecution at their expense.

RECORDED INFORMATION:

A record of all game killed must be recorded in the log book. The jawbones must be extracted and properly tagged by staff before animal is transported from the lodge. NO EXCEPTIONS.

It is mandatory that two photos be taken of any animal harvested with the Club camera 1) a close-up giving full front head shot and 2) a full body shot for purpose of promoting hunts.

TRAILING:

Trailing of animals is to be done by Club dog with management's assistance. 

A South Carolina legal buck (per SC Department of Natural Resources) must have visible horns at least two (2) inches in length above the hairline or it must be tagged as a doe at the sight of harvest. (SEE PENALTIES)

MANAGEMENT PROGRAM:

Our management program consists of one trophy buck (horns must be 17" to the outside widest point, measured from the center of the main beam and 4 points on one side) and two mature does (65 pounds or greater) per 4 day hunt.     If a buck/doe is shot at, it is to be considered a hit unless absolute certainties of total miss BEFORE SHOOTING ANOTHER. Should blood be found, even though the animal may not be found, the animal will be credited to the shooter.  Only one animal per sitting may be taken.  A $500 fee will be assessed for any guest harvesting a second buck.  A $100 fee will be charged for any guest harvesting a second doe in the same sitting.

PENALTIES:

$125 per inch under 17" and $125 per point under four points on one side to a maximum of $375. BUTTON BUCKS carry a $375 penalty.  $500 fine for shooting a second buck.  $100 fine for shooting a doe under 65 pounds.  $100 fine for shooting a second doe in the same sitting.

Penalties will be waived for bucks harvested in excess of 160 pounds (which is a 3-1/2 year old buck).

DOE TAGS:

Doe tags are available beginning September 15th and are restricted to TWO DOES per 4 day hunt. Animal must be tagged before transporting to the lodge (no exceptions). It is important to remember that extreme caution should be used for the harvest of a mature doe which will enhance the quality of our herd. A "mature" doe is defined as a doe over 65 pounds (refer to penalties). BUTTON BUCKS must be tagged as a doe, will count as a doe and carry a $375 penalty.

STANDS AND BLINDS:

There will be a drawing for stands prior to each hunt. Challenging undrawn stands must take place within 15 minutes of the drawing. Challenging must be done with the flip of a coin, or if several hunters are challenging the same stand by a second drawing among those challenging.

Hunters will remain on the stand until the hunt has ended! The stand drawn or selected is the stand occupied. NO STAND HOPPING ALLOWED!

All hunting must be done from SCHC* stands, with the exception of handicap hunters, which will be considered on a case by case basis.

TRANSPORTATION:

Vehicles are to stay on main road. Shining of spotlights in our hunt area is prohibited.

SHOOTING RANGE:

Shooting range is available and it is required upon arrival that you check your rifle for accuracy.  All shots must be executed through 20' shooting tube.  YOU MUST WEAR HEARING PROTECTION!!
