It is illegal. They mention it in the reg book. If you own land and have a farm you can get a farm permit and do what ever the hell you want to. NIGHT, DAY, CAR, TANK, ect. No rules on killing them because they are considered a nuisance to farmers. My uncle had one like I said before. We would hunt them at 12 AM from the minivan with both doors open.

DNR regulations.only the handicaped may hunt from a vehicle. no one may hunt from a water convayence or while deer iis in or near water. you must have a doctors report to qualify.

the regulations USED to say no machine guns. i really dont think that has changed. also no suppressors, drugged darts......
drugged arrows are argued to be more humane and loose less deer.

BTW baiting is "unlawful" per DNR regs. dont post pics of your trophy deer next to the corn pile. i heard about people being tracked down from you tube videos for just that.

yes a nuisance permit is different.

I have called DNR Many times about this for myself and customers. Those laws no longer apply. Suppressors and machine guns are OK on Private Property. WMA and NFA do not get along. I cant find a law saying that it is not OK but if you call bonneau ferry they will tell you that NFA is not allowed on their property.

No It isnt. You have no earthly idea what you are talking about. It is only unlawful in game zones 1 and 2 and WMA's. ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Somebody please help this guy. It wouldnt be so bad if you were just giving opinions on a gun review but you are giving wrong info pertaining to laws and regs so please stop.

HHB ive apologized, to you and come back to retract my statement and apologize to everyone else.
i only hunt in game zones 1 and 2. im sorry for trying to keep someone from being busted for baiting.
ask your DNR friends if they havent used you tube to bust people for illegal hunting. ill bet the BATFE watches you tube also.

hey guys i was wrong.
anybody else going to jump down my throat?

No worries. The only thing I would expect from anybody posting about regs and laws is have the code or reg # to back it up BEFORE you post. If you find it in the laws and regs and you can prove it then post away.
 
Tigerstripe,

Not jumping down your throat, just posted a few explainations in one of the other threads, the one with the tower stand and the bait.. As a matter of fact, in another post I offered to host you on a hunt, in the lower state hunting deer over foodplots or bait... if you're not opposed to that. For someone from the upstate, it will feel funny at first, but you'll soon discover its not a magic wand that makes deer commit suicide by walking into the awaiting bullet path :D

In SC there are several major distinctions.. Lower state WMA, Upper state WMA, Lower State Private Land, and Upper State private land.

As you've stumbled upon, there are VASTLY different regulations between each of those distinctions.. The closest set of regs are Upper/Lower State WMA, but there are still differences..

As far as Private land, the lowcountry has a completely different management approach from the upstate Aug 15-Jan 1, NO LIMIT of antlered deer, Antlerless harvest is still managed.

The hunting guides the DNR prints are not comprehensive, they address mostly changes from the year before, dates for the new seasons, changes in bag limits, etc.. AND WMA regulations.

Litterally, the only thing I think is currently off limits on private land is poisoned arrows and darts. You also have to observe the legal shooting times/hours.

There is nothing wrong with baiting, its just not allowed in your area. Theres a difference between being illegal, as in the whole world thinks its a crime, and "its against the regulations in my area"

I watched a video of a turkey hunt in texas... the gobbler was strutting under an elevated deer feeder and the hunter shot him dead as a doornail.. If I did that here, I would be in violation of the regulations, and subject to punishment in the form of fines, etc... It was perfectly legal there. I'm not accustomed to that, I'm not encouraging it here, I know better than to do that on my own in SC. But they have hardcopy video "evidence" of a crime that did not occur..

DNR Rules and regulations don't always reflect moral distinctions, they are management based decisions, not black and white good versus evil.

I like your style.

I'm gonna look into the nuisance permit since I kinda have a farm (horses and fields). We have feral pigs around too.

I'm in Darlington county/ zone 5 BTW

SuperChuck,
i missed your response to me. didnt see the offer for a hunt. are there more deer in your area or in the upstate? i wouldnt mind the hunt but the travel and time would be hard to work out. were you at the shoot here at philsons crossing?
just wondered if we met. id also like to come to a match there. im sure there would be some folks that couldnt make it up here.

when i figure out how to and where the pics are ill show you a couple of mine. for the last while i was only hunting big deer. let my wife put does and small bucks in the freezer. we walked in once and i was taking the long way. she was sitting when i "flushed" about 5 deer. i wasnt about to shoot at them , and toward her, with a 308, but i watched them run straight to her. she couldnt shoot because they ran over her. really, she said 2 of them jumped over her.
