    sort of.......I have to say I am still a little displeased with some of the stipulations. I don't have 48 hours notice before I go hunting so I won't be calling anybody first. Guess I will just be killing them like I always do.

    I did when it first came about a few years ago. You could only use a light attached to your head and a pistol with a barrel of 9" or less. In 3 Saturday nights we killed 26 hogs. It's fun and I love it. I have not tried with a spotlight and rifle. I just don't think you can get more than one shot off at 50 yards.

    You only have to give 48 hours notice once per year by registering.

    https://www.dnr.sc.gov/nighthunt/index.html (looks like it's an online system)

    "From the last day of February to July 1, upon notification to the SCDNR at least 48 hours in advance, hogs, coyotes, and armadillos may be hunted at night with or without the aid of bait, electronic calls, artificial lights, and night vision devices using any legal firearm, bow, or crossbow. Notice to the SCDNR is required once per season for each property and the names, dates of birth, and hunting license numbers of each person participating in the hunt must be made available for registration. Applicants will be asked to provide information regarding the location of the property including road names and numbers that border the property..."

    Your right. Only have to register once for that year. Not every time you wish to hunt.

    You have to register each property u wish to hunt if its not one continuous tract. And you have to wait 48hrs before going. But only once. After the initial reg of a property u can go whenever. It's really not complicated but people try to make it out to be that way.

    I assume starting July 2nd, any night hunting for hogs must abide under the old rules (weapons 9" or less etc.).
