Old Mossy Horns
From SC DNRATTENTION WMA TURKEY HUNTERS
A new WMA regulation is in effect prohibiting the practice of fanning or reaping turkeys.
Fanning/reaping is defined as hunting or stalking wild turkeys while holding or using for hunter concealment any of the following items: a tail fan, a partial or full decoy with a tail fan, or a tail fan mounted to a firearm.
Tail fans include those made of real or synthetic feathers or an image or likeness of a tail fan applied to any material.
This regulation does not prohibit the use of male decoys or decoys with tail fans that are placed away from a hunter.
This regulation DOES NOT APPLY ON PRIVATE LAND. However, this is an inherently risky practice that can be dangerous. If done on private land, all precautions should be taken to assure other hunters know your whereabouts and techniques.
Be safe out there!
