Deer Tag Information

All harvested deer in South Carolina are required to be tagged at the point of kill.

Deer tags WILL NOT be available over the counter at point-of-sales vendors (Walmart, Dick's Sporting Goods; etc.). They will be available over the counter at SCDNR offices located in Charleston, Clemson, Columbia (downtown and Farmers Market), Florence, and York after July 15. Tags may be purchased by phone after June 15 at 1-866-714-3611 or online at: http://dnr.sc.gov/purchase.html. Tags will be mailed in late July.

Resident hunters who have active licenses/big game permits when deer season begins will automatically receive their base sets of tags in late July. Residents whose licenses/big game permits expire before deer season begins should renew their licenses/big game permits at least 7-10 days prior deer hunting to ensure their deer tags arrive in time via mail.
