CHARGED WITH A CITATION BY THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES?

You need a lawyer to help you work through the issues both state and federal law that may apply to your situation.

Whether you are charged with a hunting or fishing violation, call Jordan Law Firm to set up a consultation to see if we can help.

Whether you are charged with hunting without a license or WMA permit, night hunting, shining, trespass, hunting on a baited field, negligent hunting or any other charge, the state has to prove all elements of the charge beyond a reasonable doubt.

In South Carolina they use a points based system for suspension of hunting or fishing privileges. See DNR website for a cumulative list of all points. ****

The Game and Fish Point System applies to violations inland while the Saltwater Point System applies to violations on the coast and its waterways.

One you receive points, half of the points drop off for each year you do not accumulate additional points. If you receive 18 points, the DNR will suspend your privileges.

There are also mandatory suspensions. See Table C from the DNR website.

If you are notified of a suspension, you have the right to appeal. Appeals must be filed and served within 30 days.
