1. Gaining Access
Hunters may gain access to private lands from landowners, who may charge a fee or grant free access to their land.

2. Archery
Archery is allowed during all hunting seasons. If you use archery equipment on private lands, you're allowed to harvest antlerless deer without tagging them during archery-only deer hunts and primitive weapons deer hunts beginning in mid-September.

3. Open Seasons
Hunting is allowed on Sundays on private lands. You can hunt on private land in Game Zone 1 on the last three Saturdays in November. In Game Zones 2–6 you can hunt on private land the first three Saturdays in October, the last three Saturdays in November, the last Saturday in December and on January 1.

4. Bag Limits
Individual antlerless deer tags are valid in all game zones on private land with some restrictions. In Game Zone 1, one individual antlerless deer tag may be used. In Game Zones 2–6 as many as four may be used on private land.

The daily antlerless deer bag limit on private property is one antlerless deer per day when using either individual antlerless deer tags or on designated either-sex days. The daily bag limit for deer on the statewide youth deer hunt day on private property is two deer total, but only one of the two can be an antlerless deer.

5. Use of Dogs or Bait
It's against the law to hunt deer with dogs in Game Zones 1 and 2. Hunting deer with bait is not prohibited on private lands in South Carolina.
