Yes, it is very hot and super thick here early in the season. Almost not worth hunting, but its never to hot to spend some relaxing time in the woods. Also have to watch out for rattlers that always seem to show up when your not ready for them.

Man I try not to get close enough to them to have to make a belt out of one. Atleast they let you know that they are near by. Its those copperheads that you never see until you are standing there and look down and are next to your boot. That about gives me a heart attack everytime.

I kinda like using them for backing on my recurves. Far as that hot season hunting. I grew out of that! I will hit an early am hunt here and there in the early season but other than that I dont even really want to bother the deer much until October. I dont think the opportunity prior on quality bucks is worth wearing my woods out over. I'd rather let em stay calm cool and collected and get those does solidliy using my stand areas. Then Mid October the bucks will be there.

Couple pics of my bow. I snagged this big canebreak off a pond dam down in the low country a few years back. Sure dressed up my bow nice.

That is a sweet looking bow! I have never seen that done before. You are right about waiting till Oct., but still have tthat itch to get out there in the early season.

What area of the state are you hunting? You do rifle bow both?? Me and a few buddies usually do a few public land hunts each year your more than welcome to join us . We all have private land to hunt but theres just a little more esteem in my opinion in going to public ground and being successful. Over the years weve found some sweet hunts available around SC.

I am hunting at a club in Plantersville, between Georgetown and Conway. I used to bowhunt and gun hunt growing up in MD. Since moving to SC about 10 yrs. ago I kinda have been out of the hunting loop. Maybe once or twice a year. This is the first time in a while I am really getting back into it. Just using a rifle for this year. I plan on getting back into bow hunting next year.
