Abstract
Description
For a number of years many South Carolina deer hunters have expressed concern over the unregulated harvest of antlered bucks in the state. In 2003, DNR conducted 5 public meetings related to the buck limit issue. Results of the meetings indicated that about 90 percent of meeting attendees supported the concept of a uniform limit of no more than 5 bucks with some form of tagging system in place to provide for enforcement. With this information as a background, DNR conducted 12 public meetings in January and February 2006 to gather public sentiment data related to the issue of a statewide limit on bucks including some technique like a licensed based tagging system to provide for enforcement.
