Welcome to the South Carolina Falconry Association

SCFA Mission Statement:

The purpose of the South Carolina Falconry Association is to promote the pursuit of wild game with raptors as a field sport and to encourage the conservation of raptors, their prey species, and the environments we share with them.


The SCFA annual Winter Field Meet is rapidly approaching!

We are pleased to announce that have we acquired land access from our generous host, Bill Ashkins, to prime hunting acreage with squirrel and rabbit as the primary target species.The meet will be held in Effingham, SC on February 11-12. The address is 2606 Marybank Drive.

Effingham is about 10 miles outside of Florence, SC where there are many reasonably priced hotels to choose from. The central meet location is at a cabin where the banquet and raffle will be held!

Schedule of Events for Saturday
