    Willaimsburg County produced a 233-pound buck for a Charleston high school freshman.

    Dixon Krall is 14. He’s been hunting for about seven years, and he’ll likely hunt for dozens more.

    But it may be all downhill from here, because the buck he killed in Williamsburg County on Sept. 2 may be about as good as it gets.

    This wilderness river is South Carolina’s top stream for wild brown trout.

    Rising in the high country of North Carolina and carving a 40-mile natural border between South Carolina and Georgia, the Chattooga River is one of the Southeast’s most celebrated trout streams.

    A trail-camera photo led this Horry County teen to his first buck ever, a 220-pound, 9-point trophy.

    Horry County, home of the “Grand Strand,” is widely known for its spectacular beaches, but the spotlight may be shifting inland, just across the Waccamaw River off Cates Bay Highway.

    Deer hunters may double or triple their chances of success by accessing crackerjack public hunting areas by water.

    South Carolina’s Piedmont area is blessed with an abundance of Wildlife Management Areas, ranging from rugged mountain terrain to lowland — almost swampland — bottoms.

    Old-fashioned tactics will produce plenty of ducks and geese – without great expense.

    Long ago, seasoned waterfowlers who wanted no part of the standard “sit-in-a-blind-and-twiddle-your-thumbs-while-practicing-your-calling” approach taught me that there are other ways to kill a duck.

    Fall bass fishing on Lake Marion is even more than it’s cranked up to be.

    When Inky Davis says, “Good cast” as soon as your crankbait touches the water, expect good things to happen — very quickly.

    This was precisely the case for Chuck Porter on the upper end of Lake Marion with Davis one bright autumn afternoon.

    Murrells Inlet is the center of 50 miles of great king mackerel fishing along the Grand Strand.

    When he thinks about fishing out of his home port of Murrells Inlet, Terry Grantham of Florence must feel like the guy who ordered a donut at Krispy Kreme and found the center filled with the delicious surgary glaze.

    Beach-bound fishermen can enjoy plenty of autumn action along South Carolina coastline.

    Surf fishing can be one of the more leisurely techniques to target South Carolina’s inshore fish species.

    Fishing from the shore is a great option for visitors or residents without access to a boat. A popular sentiment goes, if you’re lucky enough to be at the beach, then you’re lucky enough.
