South Carolina: “Phase II” of Belfast Plantation Acquisition Put on Hold

Friday, February 12, 2010

As we reported, 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.

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." 

The Belfast Plantation "Phase II" acquisition process has been put on hold until June.  We will be sure to keep you updated on what you can do to assist with this important effort to expand hunting and shooting opportunities in South Carolina

In the meantime, we are happy to report that State Senator Ronnie Cromer (R-18) is now officially supporting this effort.  Please take a moment to thank Senator Cromer for his support of South Carolina sportsmen by supporting the Belfast Plantation "Phase II" acquisition.  The Senator can be reached by phone at
(803) 212-6330.
