Alligator hunting seminars open to public
Wednesday, August 8, 2012
SCDNR will conduct a series of alligator hunting seminars for the public alligator hunt participants, hunting assistants and other interested persons.
These seminars will cover such topics as alligator capture and handling techniques, rules and regulations, alligator hunting equipment, processing, and other helpful information.
Interested alligator hunting equipment manufacturers and retailers are invited to attend to display and demonstrate their equipment in conjunction with the seminars.
Any vendor should plan on bringing their own tables, set-ups, or displays as dedicated space or tables may not be available.
