In cooperation with Santee Cooper, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will conduct its first alligator hunting seminar on Saturday, Aug. 13th beginning at 10 a.m. in the Auditorium at Santee Cooper’s Headquarters in Moncks Corner.

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 approximately two hours.

This is the first 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, 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.
