Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration
Celebrating 75 Years of Wildlife Conservation Success
If you have ever purchased a firearm, ammunition, archery bow and arrows, fishing lures, rods and reels, a hunting or fishing license or even fueled up your boat… you have contributed to the most successful effort to conserve fish and wildlife in the world.
- Funds are collected annually by the US Department of Treasury and apportioned to each state by the US Department of Interior
- The apportionment for each state is determined by formulas that look at the number of licenses sold, area of total land and water area
- Each state must provide a match of 25% of the project costs from a non-federal source. The most common match for these funds are fees generated through the sale of your hunting and fishing licenses
Thank you for your continued support of conservation efforts in South Carolina through your purchase of hunting and fishing licenses, as well as your gear!
