CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - South Carolina's Department of Natural Resources has added a new incentive to its coyote tagging and bounty program.

DNR officials announced Wednesday they are offering a free lifetime hunting license to anyone who kills and reports one of the coyotes DNR has tagged and released back into the wild.

The South Carolina General Assembly in 2016 and 2017 gave DNR approval to tag and release 16 coyotes around the state. The free hunting license is offered as an incentive for people to kill the animals in an effort to help control coyote population.

According to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources' website, coyotes first appeared in the upsate in 1978 but are now present in all South Carolina counties.

Proof of predator kills should result in tag price reduction for the next year. Simple easy way to reduce predator populations. (and why it would never happen..)
