Effective deer season 2017, all harvested deer in South Carolina are required to be tagged at the point of kill. Commonly called the "Deer Management Bill", passage of S.454 in June 2016 was the culmination of a multi-year effort on the part of SC deer hunters, SCDNR, and the SC General Assembly. The basis for the changes brought about by this legislation include changes in SC deer hunter attitudes and changes in the state’s deer population. Visit dnr.sc.gov/deertags for more information.
