South Carolina Deer Hunters Want Limits on Bucks

what is surprising to me, is SC still has a good buck population and good sized bucks... They really need to limit their bucks IMO if they want an even better quality of deer.

I wouldnt really get to excited about how many good bucks they have here or the numbers of bucks. The hunting here is some fo the worst I have ever experienced and for the record these "proposed" regulations which arent even slighty a reality , change nothing in terms of buck harvest for 3/4's of the state.

I have all but quit deer hunting in this state. Certainly theres great potential here but with the continued mismanagement of our deer herd, a solution is out of site. I know this much if the state ever did pull its head out and manage this herd for quality hunting instead of quantity hunting it would rebound very quickly and become one of the finest places you could want in terms of quality hunting for quality bucks.

That area has a totally different set of laws than the rest of the state. Yep we have SCDNR based regulation then we have the politicians making the rules for the rest of the state. the seasons, limits, and management practices are a joke where the politicians rule. Put it this way in the Low country of SC there is NO LIMIT on bucks. If you want you can drop 50 a day. Of course thats not possible espescially considering after years of abuse there just simply arent that many bucks making it past their first set of horns.

Sorry to hear that. Sounds a lot like Florida in some places as far as deer not making it past their first set of horns. Hopefully it'll get better for you guys.
