ATTENTION Deer Hunters: New regulation established for use of natural deer lures and attractants in South Carolina.
Within the state of South Carolina, it is illegal to possess or use, for the purpose of hunting or scouting any wild animal in S.C., any substance or material that contains or purports to contain any excretion collected from a cervid (deer) including urine, feces, blood, gland oil, or other body fluid. This does not prohibit the use of synthetic products or substances collected by a hunter from deer legally harvested in S.C. For more information check out the link at http://www.scdnr.com.
