-- South Carolina Governor, Mark Sanford approved Senate Bill 691 amending the South Carolina Code of Laws related to crossbow use. This bill amends Section 50-11-565 of the 1976 Code by striking the entire section and replacing it with a new definition of archery equipment. 

The amendment to Section 50-11-565 reads, "As used in this chapter, archery equipment means a bow and arrow, a long bow, a recurve bow, a compound bow, or a cross bow." 

Season dates are as follows:
Game Zone 1: October 1 through October 10, with primitive weapons only; October 11 through October 16, and October 31 through January 1, with archery equipment and firearms.
 
Game Zone 2: September 15 through September 30, with archery equipment only, October 1 through October 10, with primitive weapons only; October 11 through January 1, with archery equipment and firearms.

Game Zone 3: August 15 through January 1, with archery equipment and firearms.

Game Zone 5: August 15 through August 31, with archery equipment and September 1 through January 1, with archery equipment and firearms.

Game Zone 6: August 15 through January 1, with archery equipment and firearms.

Prior to this bill, crossbows were legal for handicapped hunters by permit and for all hunters during firearms and muzzleloader seasons. Crossbows were illegal during archery-only seasons.
