How Close is Too Close?
When hunting with a firearm in South Carolina, you must be 300 yards away from a residence when less than 10 feet above the ground. This law was passed in response to complaints about hunters hunting too close to houses. When hunting doves and other birds, there is no law in South Carolina concerning the distance a hunter must be away from a residence. However, you should never be so close that your shot is falling on the roof of a house or into a yard where someone may be standing.
Shoot away from residences, roads, and other areas so that your shot will not fall where it could injure others or damage property.
