James Sims of Blythewood, S.C. shot a 13-point buck that has been green-scored at 188 inches while hunting in Fairfield County. The buck may become the new S.C. state typical record after it is officially scored following the 60-day drying period. […]
The River Wars 2018 Catfish Tournament is this weekend, Dec. 15 – 16 and will at least temporarily settle the question of which anglers are better — Yadkin River Chain anglers or Catawba River Chain anglers? […]
By his own admission, it only took a few seconds for Jeremy Howard of Lillington, N.C., to go from abject sorrow to total thanksgiving. That’s how long it took Tom Naumann, owner of South Carolina’s Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge to deliver this message:
At 16-years-old, Branson Clement of Kannapolis, N.C. killed a buck unlike most hunters in the Carolinas will ever encounter in the woods on Oct. 27 on his family’s tree farm in Chesterfield County, S.C. The 10-point buck’s rack measured 150 inches and was so symmetrical that less than one inch was deducted when green scoring.
McLaurin Quick of Bennettsville, S.C. was planning on getting into the woods a little early on Nov. 8 to work on a stand before hunting that evening, but he never made it out of his driveway before killing a mainframe 8-point buck that had a total of 18 scoreable points.
Better late than never? Nope, that wouldn’t have worked for Joshua “Fatback” Sellers of Patrick, S.C., last Friday.
A 19-year-old student at Northeastern Technical College in Cheraw, S.C., Sellers was planning on heading to his deer stand later that afternoon when his brother, Steven, called and urged him to head out earlier. So he got ready and was in his tower stand, overlooking a very young cutover, by 3:30.
Jason Smythe first saw the big buck on on his trail cameras on the Smythe Farm near Ridgeway in 2016. He was a big 8-point sporting a rack with high, wide tines. The rack was so impressive Smythe dubbed him Goal Posts.
Justin Price of Pageland, S.C. killed a 140-class buck, his personal best, on Nov. 3 just four hours after the big deer showed up on his Chesterfield County hunting property’s trail cameras for the first time. And he killed it very close to the same stand he killed his previous personal best, a 129 7/8-inch buck that he took during the month of November four years earlier.
If you ever get an invitation to fish Par Pond, don’t miss it.
Par Pond, an approximately 2700-acre body of water located at South Carolina’s Savannah River Site, is managed by the Dept. of Energy. While not open to the public, it is open to fishing a few times each year for special occasions, including a recent fishing tournament for a small number of first responders and those who work in law enforcement.
