South Carolina Alligator Applications Reach New Highs
This year the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has already received over 4000 applications for their month long alligator hunt. The season opens September 10th, and applicants have until Wednesday June 15th to turn in their applications with a $10 fee. A computer program is used to select the winners of the hunt, a total of 1,200. Those selected then will have to pay a $100 for their alligator license. DNR reports that over 400 alligators are usually taken during this season. South Carolina's alligator population is around 100,000. From Wistv.com.
