Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

South Carolina State Big Game Records

Golf courses and white sand beaches abound. A few black bears and whitetail deer are running around, too 


The Palmetto State has more than 350 golf courses, and it’s estimated to have about twice that number of black bears. The state has two resident black bear populations: one in the mountains and upper piedmont in the northwest and one in the coastal plain. Hunters harvest around 10 percent of the population each year, and the state has produced four record-book bruins.

Whitetails, though, are another story. With liberal bag limits and long hunting seasons, South Carolina is hard-pressed to produce many “book bucks.” It does happen, though. See for yourself in the records below.
