To start, I haven't been hunting in 20 years. Went to my mom's house to pick up my dad's old Remington 600 .308 iron sights just to plink around and found out there's a tiny piece of WMA 5 minutes from the house. Bought my sportsman 2 weeks ago and it was $50 well spent... gotta love the rut!!! First Buck!
I am 17 years old and from Pelion, SC. I had a great start to the season by getting not one, but two big bucks in Lexington County. I got a 10- point and a 9-point, both in full velvet. The 10-point had a drop tine on the left main beam and had an inside spread of 17 and 1/2 inches and weighed 215 lbs. The 9-point weighed around 150 lbs. I used a Ruger .308.
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....

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....

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....

Abbie Strong looked out the back window of her home to see if any whitetail were at the corn pile she and her husband had created one recent morning. She didn't see any deer, but she was just as excited to see a hog, which she dispatched with haste. It's the first hog she has harvested.
Strong put a single bullet behind the hog's ear, then hauled it to Peach Orchard Processing in....

I am searching for a igh hquality hunting club in or near Richland county. Ft. Jackson/Bluff Road or Broad River areas prefered. I am a safe and ethical trophy deer and turkey hunter who also enjoys hunting ducks, doves, hogs and coyotes.
The Broad River continues to run high after all the rain that fell in the past month or so, but Mike McSwain of Broad River Smallmouth (843-763-3805) said the bite is still strong. He has had to look harder for the fish on some days, but he said he has found them each trip. The one big difference in fishing he sees with the high water is that more largemouth are biting than normal. While....
