|SCDNR's Charles Ruth in Walterboro on Oct. 15|
Managing the natural resources of South Carolina is a tough assignment as the state’s population and economic prosperity grows. When it comes to game animals and legal bag limit enforcement, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources and their wildlife officers are on the front lines. Seven meetings were held across the state by SCDNR to discuss changes to deer management, with the final one taking place at the Colleton Center in downtown Walterboro.

Charles Ruth, the SCDNR deer and turkey biologist, conducted all of the meetings. He first visited Florence on September 22, then made stops in Lancaster, North Augusta, Pendleton, Greenwood, Orangeburg and then in Walterboro on Thursday, October 15. For anyone that did not attend one of the meetings, the same power point presentation that Ruth showed is now available online as a You Tubevideo, with an electronic survey following the video.
