DNR to host alligator hunting seminar at Horry Georgetown Technical College

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with the Forestry and Wildlife Program at Horry Georgetown Technical College, will conduct its first alligator hunting seminar on Saturday, Aug. 7 beginning at 10 a.m. at the Georgetown Campus. This seminar is for the public alligator hunt participants, hunting assistants and other interested persons. The program will cover such topics as alligator capture and handling techniques, rules and regulations, alligator hunting equipment, processing, and other helpful information.

This is the first in a series of four alligator hunting seminars scheduled during the month of August.

Interested alligator hunting equipment manufacturers and retailers are invited to attend to display and demonstrate their equipment in conjunction with the seminars; however, 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 and vendor space may be limited so all interested vendors should first check and pre-register with DNR at (803) 734-3886. Vendors may be charged a fee for attendance at the Spartanburg seminar.

The seminars dates and times are scheduled as follows:
