Welcome new hunter. Not sure where some of the above posters get their information
, but the entire SC coast that is not impounded or part of some refuge is open for public hunting. There are also many class 3 waterfowl areas located throughout the state that are open to any legal hunter on certain days, In addition there are areas on nearly all lakes and rivers that are open to public hunting. We may not have the quality areas like Arkansas or Missiouri, but we have plenty of areas that are open to the public. Just leave your airboats in another state cause SC don't allow them during duck season anymore. Welcome back and good hunting.
