  • Chris Warren with a nice bobcat trapped with Big Country Outdoors
Chris Warren with Big Country Outdoors has been trapping in the Sumter County area, and has been having success with beavers, coyotes, raccoons, and bobcats.

Trapping is not the most popular outdoor adventure in South Carolina, and some sportsmen don't even know an open season exists for it. It lasts about a month each year, and participants must have the proper permit to trap. The....  Read More

  • This coyote, as well as many others, fell prey to the trapping efforts of Big Country Outfitters.
Deer season is over, but that doesn't mean managing the deer herd is. One of the best ways to do that in South Carolina is to thin the numbers of coyotes that, according to SCDNR biologist Charles Ruth, is responsible for the majority of deer fawn kills each year.

Sumter's Tracy Leviner and Chris Warren of Big Country Outfitters have been doing their share by trapping these non-native....  Read More

My work usually slows through the winter months so I thought I would be around to do some serious trapping this year. Fortunitly I was extreamly busy all winter and unfortunitly I didn't get to do much trapping. The last Saturday I made 6 coyote sets with my son. The last day was March 1 and we caught this nice coyote. If God's willing we'll see you all next year.

  • Set this channel going from beaver pond to main lake. Easy!
Our channel set is consistantly producing. We made a slide set today, we'll see how it does tomorrow.

  • Local Golf Course asked us if we would like to manage there beaver and muskrats.
This is the committment of trapping, pouring down rain walk in 1/2 mile in the dark and through the mud and muck, but the rewards can be great! In this case a huge Golf Course Beaver. Now we have to carry him out! 1/2 mile back out through the mud and the muck, suns up now, priceless memories with my son and trapping partner.

Coyotes have overrun our hunting land for the past 5-7 years. We were considering paying someone to trap coyotes for us but were told the best way to begin is to pay someone to train people in the club to trap, seemed expensive. Any recommendations on the best way to begin to trap these animals? I would love to try it but not sure where to start or if I have the time.

We are counting down the days for our first Dec 1 opening day! I know I am anxious to get some steel in the ground! Having an additional month to trap has me looking for more land.....If any of you know of more land available....let me know!

Hopefully we will show some good catches this season. I'm trying out some new lure and bait, so I am hopeful it will be as good as I've heard.
