Its the time of year to buy new hunting and fishing licenses in South Carolina, and this year outdoors enthusiasts have a new option multi-year licenses.
The Legislature has OKd the purchase of three-year hunting and fishing licenses. Theres no financial savings in buying the extended license, but it saves the hassle of going through the process for the next couple of years.
A three-year hunting license is $36, freshwater fishing license is $30, big-game permit is $18 and a combination license for hunting, freshwater fishing and big-game hunting is $75.
Licenses can be purchased at S.C. Department of Natural Resources offices in Charleston, Clemson, Columbia and Florence, at the 450 license agents in the state, by phone at (866) 714-3611 or online at dnr.sc.gov/purchase.html
