I wouldnt really get to excited about how many good bucks they have here or the numbers of bucks. The hunting here is some fo the worst I have ever experienced and for the record these "proposed" regulations which arent even slighty a reality , change nothing in terms of buck harvest for 3/4's of the state.
I have all but quit deer hunting in this state. Certainly theres great potential here but with the continued mismanagement of our deer herd, a solution is out of site. I know this much if the state ever did pull its head out and manage this herd for quality hunting instead of quantity hunting it would rebound very quickly and become one of the finest places you could want in terms of quality hunting for quality bucks.
That area has a totally different set of laws than the rest of the state. Yep we have SCDNR based regulation then we have the politicians making the rules for the rest of the state. the seasons, limits, and management practices are a joke where the politicians rule. Put it this way in the Low country of SC there is NO LIMIT on bucks. If you want you can drop 50 a day. Of course thats not possible espescially considering after years of abuse there just simply arent that many bucks making it past their first set of horns.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
