DNR to host alligator hunting seminar in Greenville Aug. 20

In partnership with Clemson Extension Service, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources will conduct its second alligator hunting seminar beginning 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 20 at the University Center of Greenville, located in the McAllister Square Mall in Greenville.

The 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. The seminar will last about two hours.

This is the second in a series of three 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, 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, and vendor space may be limited so all interested vendors should first check and pre-register with DNR at (803) 734-3886.

The alligator hunting seminars are scheduled as follows:
