South Carolina Turkey Lottery Applications Now Available

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is now accepting applications for turkey lottery hunts on public lands through Monday, March 2nd at 5:00 pm.

A non-refundable fee of $5 is required of all applicants for the Multi-site Turkey Lottery Hunt and $5 for the youth applicant on the Youth Multi-site Turkey Hunt.

After the selection process occurs, only the primary applicant will receive email notification of the drawing’s completion.


In addition to the required hunting license, big game permit, and WMA permit, all turkey hunters, including youth, are required to have turkey tags in possession while hunting. Tags may be purchased on-line, by phone or at license vendors and will be mailed beginning in mid-February. Tags will also be available over the counter at SCDNR regional offices starting in late February.
