Thank You!

Manufacturers of hunting and fishing equipment (arms, ammunition and manufactured fishing tackle) support the programs of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources through the collection of an excise tax at the federal level. These taxes are pro-rated to state fish and wildlife agencies to assist in the management and conservation of natural resources throughout the states. For the past 60 years, these funds have achieved results in wildlife management and conservation through a public-and private-sector partnership that includes the Fish and Wildlife Service, state fish and wildlife agencies, firearms, fishing tackle and boating industries, and hunters, shooters, anglers and boaters. THANKS go to the hunting and fishing industries for supporting this important program!
