-- Young waterfowl hunters across the South Carolina will enjoy special days in the field Saturday, Jan. 31 and Sunday, Feb. 1 by participating in Youth Waterfowl Days on private lands and on some S.C. Department of Natural Resources Waterfowl Management Areas.
Hunters 15 years of age or younger may hunt ducks, geese, mergansers and coots on Saturday, Jan. 31 and Sunday, Feb. 1 when accompanied by an adult at least 18 years of age. Daily and possession bag limits are the same as the regular duck season.
The adult cannot carry a firearm or hunt and does not have to be licensed. South Carolina youth waterfowl hunters are not required to have the federal waterfowl stamp and the HIP (migratory bird) permit for the Jan. 31-Feb. 1 hunt.
