South Carolina Deer Baiting Laws & Regulations

Summary of South Carolina Deer Baiting Regulations

Baiting or hunting deer over bait is permitted on private lands statewide.

On WMA's, baiting and hunting remains prohibited.

Detailed Regulations

Act 2 of the 2013 South Carolina General Assembly removed the prohibition on baiting for deer on private lands in Game Zones 1 and 2. Therefore, baiting for deer is no longer prohibited on private land anywhere in South Carolina. Baiting or hunting over bait remains prohibited on WMA's statewide.
