Due to a technical issue, the toll-free call center telephone line normally available to assist customers with the sale of S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR)-issued hunting and fishing licenses or watercraft registration renewals went down Monday, Aug. 16 and was to be unavailable for an indeterminate period of time.
Recreational hunting and fishing licenses, tags, and permits can still be purchased online at https://www.dnr.sc.gov/legallicense.html. A small convenience fee may be included for online transactions.
Licenses and permits can also be purchased at any of more than 500 license vendors located across the state, including big-box retailers and locally-owned sporting goods, hardware, or bait-and-tackle shops, or at regional SCDNR offices.
Boating transactions can be processed by mail. Visit the boat registration and titling page on the SCDNR website for more information, frequently asked questions, downloadable applications and other assistance related to the requirements for registering and titling boats and motors at https://www.dnr.sc.gov/boating/Titling_and_Registration/index.html.
