Rules and Regulations


The City of Charleston's split Urban Deer Hunt season will be open from September 5 - December 31, 2020 and January 11-31, 2021. The City will begin accepting hunter applications on August 3, 2020 via US Postal Service only, as City Hall remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The application cost has been increased to $10.00 per hunter and copies of all documentation are required for the application to be processed.

Emailed, in-person and applications post marked before Friday, July 31 will not be accepted. Applications, support documentation and payment should be mailed to the City of Charleston with "Urban Deer Hunt" written on the outside of the envelope. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the City of Charleston.
