Alligator Lottery Applications to Open on June 1

May 01, 2023

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is moving the opening day of the Alligator Lottery Applications to June 1. The deadline to apply is being moved to July 15.

With our new vendor, we are able to move the lottery closer to the opening of the season in order to streamline the application and notification schedule as well as allow tag purchases immediately after the lottery is finalized.
