The landscape of diverse habitats across South Carolina provides many of the survival needs of wildlife. The diversity of vegetation provides excellent cover for wildlife; however, it greatly eliminates the ability to directly count all wildlife in a given area. In addition, most wildlife species are secretive by their very nature, and usually will not not hold still long enough to be counted. Therefore, the task of determining how many wildlife are on a particular tract of land is difficult. Yet landowners most frequently ask the question: “How many deer, quail, turkey, or other wildlife do I have on my land?”
