Overall outlook: “Although reproductive success has only been fair in recent years, the spring harvest has remained solid,” says Charles Ruth, big-game program coordinator for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

Potential 2019 hotspots: Ruth suggests that hunters look at Sumter National Forest in the piedmont area and Webb Wildlife Center Wildlife Management Area in the coastal plain region.

South Carolina 2019 Spring turkey hunting season opened on Private land: March 20 through May 5; public (wildlife management area) land: April 1 through May 5. 

Limit is: three gobblers per season, no more than two per day.

The SCDNR Big Game Program is interested in better understanding the experiences, techniques and factors of success for Wild Turkey hunters in South Carolina. In order to do that we need the input of dedicated turkey hunters.
If you hunt turkeys in South Carolina and would like to help out and participate in periodic online surveys, please fill out the information below to register. This information helps us learn more about hunters' opinions and make more informed management recommendations and decisions.

By signing up below, your email address will be included in a list that will receive a survey link that you can access and complete on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The first survey link will be emailed out shortly after the close of turkey season this spring. Other surveys may occur in the future as information is needed.
