Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort’s deer season officially began Sept. 15. The Air Station offers acres of hunting for both shotgun and bow hunters.
The Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Office aboard the air station will hold their annual hunting class upon request.
“The class basically presents the rules and regulations that hunters need to follow to protect themselves and the environment,” said Gary Herndon, the Air Station game warden. “The class takes about an hour but we cover everything to keep you out of trouble.
“It is an annual requirement to hunt on the Air Station, so if you don’t complete the course, you don’t hunt.”
Any Tri-Command active duty service member or civilian employee can hunt aboard the Air Station with a valid South Carolina hunting license.
South Carolina hunting permits can be purchased at numerous locations or online at the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources’ website www.dnr.sc.gov. For service members, the price of a big game license is $6 but to be able to hunt at local wildlife management areas it will cost $30.50.
