    From release

    South Carolina’s 2018 deer harvest increased about 5 percent, according to results of the 2018 Deer Hunter Survey conducted by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.
    The harvest comprised 109,208 bucks and 85,778 does for a total of 194,986 deer, said Charles Ruth, the department’s Big Game Program coordinator.
    The modest increase in harvest is likely due to some level of remaining “carry-over” of deer from 2015 and 2016.
