On opening day the only gobbling going on came from someone else's property. As the sun broke the horizon, a hen that was roosted a few trees to my right broke out with a series of cackles, she flew down nearly to my lap, and proceeded to check out the two decoys I had set. Busting out above me, was a long bearded tom. He locked his wings, landed past the decoys, and left the scene. Talk.... Read More
This is my fouth year hunting turkey's and for the fourth year I am having the same problem. I spend a lot of time in the woods on public land near Winnsboro. After deer season is over I squirrel hunt this area. I've got the winter pattern for turkeys pretty much pinned down. Opening day I was in the middle of five gobblers within 1/4 mile. Missed the closest one as he took to a hen right.... Read More
After a bit of a slow start to the 2014 turkey season (both in terms of gobbling activity and encounters), the tables turned for me on Sunday morning. I was trying a new spot at a hunt club I recently joined on Saturday and had located a big bird strutting with a hen in the middle of a soon to be planted corn field the day before. Unfortunately, I didn't locate him until 8:30 am that day and he.... Read More
After 3 years of turkey hunting I FINALLY got one. I gave up on turkey hunting on March the 2nd only to resume on March the 3rd. Good thing I did. He was a young one....about 1.5 years old. Shot in Early Branch, SC.

The SCDNR holds lotteries each year for turkey hunts on land that is intensively managed for quality wildlife. The demand for these hunts outweighs the opportunities, so hunters enter a lottery, or drawing, and hope to get picked for these great hunting trips.
Hunters can now apply for these hunts online, as well as through the mail or in person at one of the four regional SCDNR.... Read More

HOOT HOOT HOOT ~ Gobbler season is just around the corner. Get out your turkey calls and knock the dust off of your turkey vest. SHAKE IT GOOD FIRST and get the spiders out of it. Wipe off your slate calls and get a fresh batch of diaphragm calls wet. It's just around the corner and if you don't start now you will be RUSTY when opening day swings around the corner.
It's never too late to practice. That slow period between the end of deer season and the beginning of Turkey Season is a good time to practice. SHOTGUNNING :) You never know when you are going to need those skills sharpened.
When that first blast from a seated position misses the glowing red head of a spring gobbler, you may be required to back yourself up with that second shot. It.... Read More
Early spring is the time of year when PIGS come to mind. They have been eating all of the corn from the deer feeders and messing up deer hunts throughout the season. Now it is time to get them. I like the weather to be cold and the food to be scarce, because it makes them much more predictable. You can put corn out and make them come regularly without hesitation.

Deer season is over, but it is always hog season in South Carolina, and sportsmen and women have more options with hogs than deer. While firearms and bows are options for either animal, hog hunters can also use knives, and can also hunt at night.
Sumter's Sarah McClam and Chris Warren haven't let the end of deer season stop them from stocking their freezers full of game. On a recent.... Read More
