Record number of applications for SC gator hunting

Jun 14, 2011 6:54:00 AM - thestate.com
South Carolina wildlife officials say they've received a record number of applications for alligator hunting licenses.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that the Natural Resources Department said more than 4,000 applications have been received so far. Wednesday is the deadline to pay $10 to apply for a license for this fall's season.

Only 1,200 applications will be approved. The agency uses a computer program to select the winners, though the program gives a bonus to those who have applied unsuccessfully in the past.

Those selected must pay $100 for the alligator hunting license.

South Carolina's month-long alligator hunting season opens Sept. 10.
