South Carolina Sportsman magazine caters to the interests of hunters and fishermen throughout the state, and the response we receive on a monthly basis from our readers is tremendous. Most say that they love being able to open a magazine and read about the places that they actually fish or hunt.

Our editorial content changes depending on the season. For example, from February through March we focus on freshwater fishing; from April through August we emphasize both freshwater and saltwater fishing; and from September through January we feature hunting as well as fishing.

Our saltwater coverage features local fishing hotspots for coastal species such as speckled trout and redfish as well as offshore species such as tuna, marlin and king mackerel. Freshwater features usually cover bass, crappie, bream and striped bass. Beginning with our annual hunting issue in September, we feature local hot spots and experts on deer, waterfowl, doves, rabbits, squirrels and a host of other huntable game.

Our regular monthly articles include Lure Reviews, News Briefs, Marine Electronics, Statewide Fishing Forecast, Tide Tables and year-round hunting & fishing columns.

If you would like additional information on our editorial schedule, please feel free to call our editor Dan Kibler at (336) 416-9631.
