Help Create Hunting and Recreational Shooting Opportunities in South Carolina!

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), along with the South Carolina Conservation Bank, The Conservation Fund, and the National Wild Turkey Federation, is working to acquire the Belfast Plantation, which will help to greatly expand hunting and shooting opportunities in South Carolina

The 4,664-acre property is located in Laurens and Newberry Counties and SCDNR intends to use the land for hunting as well as recreational shooting. 

NRA has been working closely with SCDNR on developing shooting ranges, including a range located in "Phase I" of the Belfast property, and we are very supportive of the efforts to complete the acquisition of the remainder of the land in "Phase II." 

In order for this transaction to be completed, SCDNR must have approval to use Heritage Trust funds from the South Carolina General Assembly.  The first step of this approval process involves the legislators who serve Newberry County, who must support the effort. 

Please contact State Senator Ronnie Cromer (R-18) and State Representative Walton McLeod (D-40) TODAY and encourage them to support SCDNR's efforts to acquire the Belfast Plantation.  In addition, please contact the members of the Newberry County Council and urge them to support this effort.  Contact information can be found below.
