Thank You!

Manufacturers of hunting and fishing equipment (arms, ammunition and manufactured fishing tackle) support the programs of SCDNR through the collection of a federal excise tax. These taxes are pro-rated to state fish and wildlife agencies to assist in the management and conservation of natural resources. For over 70 years, wildlife management and conservation efforts have achieved results with these funds and the public-and private-sector partnership with the Fish and Wildlife Service, state fish and wildlife agencies, firearms, fishing tackle and boating industries, hunters, shooters, anglers and boaters. THANKS to the hunting and fishing industries for supporting this important program.
