This coastal, back-barrier island, adjacent to Hilton Head, has a moderate deer population that is kept in check by an annual, one-day shotgun hunt, typically held in early November. Deer can be found all over the hunting area, which includes 1,000 acres of uplands. Please download the current refuge hunting regulations below for details on how to participate.
All hunters 16 and older must purchase a $25 Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex Hunt Permit in order to hunt the refuge. Click here to purchase your permit.
WE ADVISE HUNTERS NOT TO PURCHASE HUNT PERMITS ANY EARLIER THAN ONE WEEK BEFORE YOU PLAN TO HUNT. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF PERMITS WE WILL ISSUE IN A SEASON, AND THEREFORE NO BENEFIT TO PURCHASING IT EARLY.
