The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is continuing to monitor the lingering effects of Hurricane Mathew.  Specifically, SCDNR is tracking the ongoing flooding occurring on the Waccamaw and Pee Dee Rivers.  The agency is responsible for the management of fish and wildlife resources and has temporarily closed the deer hunting season in the Waccamaw and Pee Dee River drainage systems, where high floodwaters are causing an adverse impact on wildlife.  


The temporary closure of the Waccamaw River area is set to expire at midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 25, and the temporary closure of the Little and Great Pee Dee Rivers areas is set to expire at midnight on Saturday, Oct. 29.  


SCDNR will be monitoring the water levels over the coming days and will make a determination regarding the continuation or cancellation of the temporary hunting bans prior to the expiration of the existing closures.  If necessary, the agency will order another temporary emergency closure of the season and notify sportsmen through media outlets.
