    Hunters will be notified beginning July 1 of selection status. After notification, successful applicants are then required to go back online to pay the $100 dollar Alligator Permit fee. The Department will begin to send out permits and tags to fully paid applicants after July 15th. The deadline for paying the $100 permit fee is October 1, but you must allow the Department 5 business days to deliver the permit and tag after receipt of payment. Hunters that fail to pay the $100 permit fee by the end of the Alligator Hunting Season will not receive any preference points and will forfeit any accumulated points. The Department reserves the to right to prohibit applicants that fail to pay from participating in future public alligator hunt drawings.

    talk about bs, just got my rejection in the mail with a freakin prefrence point. i just called down to the dnr and they are checking into it because it is almost statisticly impossible to not draw with a pref point. and they did not even give me credit for last years point, they are showing me with one point.

    They just called me back and fixed the problem, for some reason they did not check the pref points. They said that there were more people with the same problem so if you did not draw with a pref point, call them and they will take care of it.

    Well, myself, the wife and two friends put in and all were rejected. I guess that is to be expected being the first year for all of us. We'll try again next year. Did you get yours Sunbird?

    You may want to call the SCDNR because from my understanding they had some kind of trouble and people didn't get their point from last year's hunt. I know one guy called and got his so its just a thought.

    Good luck Nick. I'll be down there chasing some gator also. I've got a group with three tags. I am hoping we can pull it off in one night and squeeze in a little catfishing also. Remember that you can not hunt Friday night after midnight this year, the season doesn't start until noon on saturday. You hunting the upper, middle, or lower area of the lake?
