Property Owner Information
This property is not owned by South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, but is part of the leased lands management program.
This dove field resides within Crackerneck Wildlife Management Area and Ecological Reserve
The 60 acre field is irregularly shaped and stretches for 0.75 miles along Bent Rim Road. Numerous hedgerows bisect the field and results in accomodations for additional hunters. The field is planted annually in wheat, corn, sunflowers, sorghum and millet. A powerline exists on the property. Parking near the center of the field is limited and once the lot is filled, hunters must park along the road either before or after the field to prevent flairing birds.
Hunters utilizing this field must have a valid hunting license, wildlife management area permit and migratory bird permit. Game species other than dove cannot be hunted on this property and there are no activities allowed other than dove hunting.
