South Carolina

Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF South Carolina will conserve or enhance 160,000 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF South Carolina will recruit 18,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF South Carolina will increase public hunting access by 47,600 additional acres in the next decade.
  • NWTF South Carolina works with partners, including state and federal wildlife agencies, to create hunting opportunities.
  • NWTF South Carolina and its partners put resources behind acquiring land for public hunting and creating easier access to current public lands.
  • NWTF South Carolina works jointly with surrounding states and other conservation partners to meet the critical wildlife habitat needs for the region. 

At the National Wild Turkey Federation, the outdoors isn’t just what’s on the other side of the glass, it’s where we feel most alive. And we’re making America the best it can be for the people and wildlife who call it home. The NWTF has divided the country in six areas — America’s Big Six of Wildlife Conservation — to focus our effort on the most critical wildlife habitat needs.  

South Carolina is part of America’s Southern Piney Woods and America’s Mid-South Rebirth. NWTF South Carolina is committed to stop habitat loss, improve forest management, increase habitat diversity, improve water quality and maintain healthy hardwood forests.
