  • Head hurts!?!?!?!

    I just recently moved to the South Carolina Area and I'm not going to lie I was pretty pumped. I've hunted deer, turkey, bear in mass, ct, vt, and Maine all in public land and some private. I was so pumped to be moving down because of the variety of fishing I'd be able to do and more importantly the massive population of deer. But after downloading the regulation book, I feel like I need a phd on what to do. It seems like it is almost impossible if not need to be highly educated on all the different regulations for these WMA areas. Can some one shed some light on all these regulations for me. For example up by me if you hunt public land you buy a hunting license and you go hunting simple as that. It seems that for francis marion you literally need a course just to understand everything
    . What do I need, where can I go, what can't I do etc. I live near goose creek and was thinking of hunting Francis Marion.
    Less Difficult that it seems :)
    It's a well organized game plan. The Francis Marion is zoned and each zone has its own boundary and different hunting regs. Pick the area that you are going to want to hunt and dive in. Gather up some topos and look at the lay of the land. Figure out which species you are going to hunt and then read up on that zones regulations. I hunt the Francis Marion on the coastal zones and have plenty of opportunity to collect game. :)
