    Don’t scrimp on strings

    Lottery deer hunts offer premium hunting experience

    While many outdoorsmen across the Carolinas have private hunting land or are in a private hunt club, some don’t have that opportunity, or don’t hunt often enough to make this feasible for them. And even for those who do, sometimes they’d like to hunt other land that is extensively managed for game animals.

    North Carolina hunters will pay more to hunt in South Carolina this year

    In years past, non-resident hunters have had it very easy in South Carolina. A non-resident hunting license and a big game permit were the only things required for harvesting deer in the Palmetto State, and compared to most states, the non-resident fees in South Carolina have always been more than fair. Some big changes are coming across the board with the 2017-18 South Carolina deer hunting season, including what it will take for non-resident hunters to kill deer here.

    Many changes are coming to South Carolina deer hunters this year, for both resident and non-resident hunters. One big change is where and when you can obtain your deer hunting tags.

    Barnett Ghost 420

    The new Ghost 420 is the fastest crossbow Barnett has ever created. As the name implies, it’ll fling the right arrows up to 420 fps. The Ghost is a lightweight bow that punches out of its weight class thanks to a carbonite riser and an aluminum flight track. The Ghost 420 comes standard with a 1.5-5x32mm illuminated scope that will inspire confidence in all shooters.

    Big buck bonanza - Here’s how to get more out of your local, Carolina whitetail bucks

    When most hunters think about truly monster whitetail bucks, midwestern states and Canadian provinces typically come to mind. No doubt, Illinois, Ohio and Saskatchewan consistently produce heavy-hoofed beasts with a chandelier full of antler, but hunters in the Carolinas don’t have to buy a plane ticket and travel across the continent to get a shot at the trophy of a lifetime, either. The home dirt produces its fair share of wall hangers, and with the right formula, bucks can reach their potential.
