Turkey tags are being printed and mailed this week. If you have purchased or requested tags already, “Seasonal Wild Turkey Tags” should appear on your hunting license, and you should receive them soon.
All hunters, including youth, are required to have turkey tags in possession while hunting during the regular season. They are $5 for a set of three for residents (with exceptions) and $100 for a set of two for nonresidents.
All Lifetime (including Senior and Disability) and Catawba Licensees who requested their free set of turkey tags last year will automatically receive them this year and into the future. If you have one of these license types and did not request turkey tags last year you will need to request them this year, you will then receive them automatically each year.
Youth and 3-Year Disability Licensees must request these free tags annually.
Tags will also be available over the counter at SCDNR offices in Charleston, Clemson, West Columbia at the Market, Florence, and York beginning March 8.
Tags are not available at point-of-sale license vendors (WalMart, Academy Sports, etc.), at the SCDNR Columbia (Assembly Street) Office or at field offices not listed above.
If “Seasonal Wild Turkey Tags” appears in your list of privileges on your hunting license and you have not received tags in the mail by March 10, contact our license office at (803) 734-3833.
Tags may be purchased or requested by phone at 1-866-714-3611 or online at: https://www.dnr.sc.gov/purchase.html.
Please allow 5-7 days for the tags to arrive by mail once you’ve purchased or requested them.
