2013/2014 Hunting & Fishing Publications


NEW FOR 2013: The Harris Neck NWR gun hunt is now an open hunt (no quota/drawing), therefore an application does not need to be submitted.


Listed below are the 2013-2014 hunting & fishing regulations for Savannah, Pinckney Island, Harris Neck, Blackbeard Island, and Wassaw National Wildlife Refuges. Any regulations, permits, and/or applications with a date other than 2013/14 are no longer valid and will not be accepted. All refuge hunts, except for the Pinckney Island NWR gun hunt and any specialty hunts (mobility-impaired or youth hunts), are open to an unlimited number of hunters. The only requirement for participating in these non-quota hunts is that the regulations brochure be read, signed, and carried with the hunter while hunting. To participate in the Pinckney Island NWR gun hunt or any specialty hunt, qualified hunters must read the hunting regulations brochure and submit an application by August 31, 2013 (all hunt applications have a separate link to an instruction sheet - PLEASE READ BEFORE COMPLETING APPLICATION). Drawings for quota hunts will be conducted the first week of September, and those hunters who are drawn will be notified by mail. Please direct all hunting questions to Amy Ochoa at (843) 784-2468.

This annual permit will autorize hunters to participate in any non-quota hunt, on any refuge within the Complex (Savannah, Harris Neck, Wassaw, and Blackbeard Island). Instructions on how to purchase this new permit are still being developed, and will be available soon on this website.
