Alligator Hunting Seminars Scheduled in August by SC DNR
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources will conduct a series of three alligator hunting seminars in the month of August for the public alligator hunt participants, hunting assistants and other interested persons. These seminars will cover such topics as alligator capture and handling techniques, rules and regulations, alligator hunting equipment, processing, and other helpful information.
Seminars will be held in Hampton County, Berkeley County and in the Florence/Darlington area. Also, the “South Carolina Alligator Hunting Guide”(Adobe PDF file) is now available.
Interested alligator hunting equipment manufacturers and retailers are invited to attend to display and demonstrate their equipment in conjunction with the seminars. However, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) does not endorse any type, brand, or make of such equipment. Any vendors should plan on bringing their own tables, set-ups, or displays as dedicated space or tables may not be available. On-premises sales are restricted at certain sites, so all interested vendors should first check with DNR at (803) 734-3886.
All seminars are scheduled to start at 10 a.m.
- The first alligator hunting seminar will be Saturday, Aug. 16 in Hampton County at the DNR’s Webb Wildlife Center, 1282 Webb Ave., Garnett, SC 29922.
- The second seminar will be Saturday, Aug. 23 in Berkeley County at Santee Cooper Auditorium, 1 Riverwood Drive, Moncks Corner, SC 29461.
