Welcome to the Fort Jackson iSportsman Service

Dec 14, 2017 - Our iSportsman site is currently under construction. At this time iSportsman will not go live before 6 January 2018.

Coming Soon!

The Fort Jackson iSportsman system is where hunters and anglers will purchase permits, check training area status, check into and out of areas, and report your catch or harvest. Once operational, permits will no longer be sold at MWR's Marion Street Station.  In addition, you will no longer have to sign-in and sign-out at the Big Game Check Station (Heise's Pond).  Only Big Game hunters who successfully harvest a deer or turkey will be required to check their harvest in at the Big Game Check Station.

Fort Jackson iSportsman is a web-based system accessible by computer or smart-phone.  Fort Jackson iSportsman is also accessible by telephone to check the availability of areas and ponds, and to check-in and check-out.  Account creation and permit sales cannot be completed by telephone.  To check-in and check-out by phone, call 844-222-9333.

Fort Jackson fishing and hunting permit sales and access is restricted to the following groups of individuals:  Active duty personnel, military retirees, current and retired DOD civilian employees, reservists, National Guard, dependents of the above, DOD contractor employees, technical representatives, and employees of military banking facilities working on Fort Jackson as determined by the Installation Commander.  The general public may only participate as a Guest of an above authorized person, or participate in specific hunting and fishing events or programs (ex. managed hunts) as organized and announced by FMWR.

With the implementation of iSportsman there will be numerous changes to the Fort Jackson hunting and fishing regulations and operational procedures.  It is imperative that users develop a working knowledge of the Fort Jackson hunting and fishing regulation (FJ Reg 28-4 - currently being revised).



Because of live-fire training, both past and present, it is possible to encounter unexploded ordnance (UXO) while recreating on Fort Jackson.  It is your responsibility to be aware of your surroundings, stay within your assigned areas, avoid off-limits areas, and know the procedures in the event you discover UXO.  Know the 3Rs of UXO safety listed below.  A good rule to follow is:  If you didn't drop it, don't pick it up!  To report UXO, call Range Operations and 751-7171.
