The S.C. Department of Natural Resources is offering a new series of archery hunts for deer and hogs during October on Samworth and Santee-Delta Wildlife Management Areas in Georgetown County.
This new series of archery hunts for deer and hogs will take place on Samworth Wildlife Management Area and Santee-Delta Wildlife Management Area, both in Georgetown County. The hunts are scheduled for Oct. 5-7, 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28.
“We are trying to maximize hunting opportunities by opening up these areas, which are primarily managed for waterfowl, to be hunted for deer and hogs,” said Jim Westerhold, S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Upper Coastal Waterfowl Project leader. “The dikes will offer a good opportunity to harvest a deer and/or hog. The hunts are also an opportunity for the public to help us remove these wild hogs, which are damaging the dikes.”
For more information on the hunts, call Westerhold in Georgetown at (843) 546-8665 or e-mail WesterholdJ@dnr.sc.gov.
