Tuesday’s Tracking: Lowcountry Hunting

March 4th, 2008

Tuesday's TrackingsI must admit, writing these posts seems to get harder and harder.  Not because of a dearth of good blogs, but rather because of the great number of worthy blogs to write about.  I think I have my Tuesday blog set for some time!

Today, I want to throw my spotlight on Jeff over at Lowcountry Hunting.   Jeff lives, works and hunts in South Carolina, which is a world apart from what we have here in West Virginia.  One of the reasons I enjoy reading Jeff’s blog is because the hunting is so much different than what I get to experience up here.  I know, from living in Alabama for five years that they just do things differently in the south, and I grew to appreciate and enjoy the differences.  I still try to get at least a couple hunts per year in down in ‘bama.

Jeff also has one the opportunity to manage a couple of hunting properties.  Based on some of the pictures he puts up on his blog, it looks like he is doing a good job.  Jeff also posts about many of the issues that affect hunting, especially in South Carolina.  Today, he has a blog posted about legislation that would remove  the DNR Board, instead replacing it with a secretary appointed by the governor.  You can go over to his page and read about the repercussions of such a move.  Needless to say, it wouldn’t be in the best interest of the sportsmen!

I have to admit, however, that Jeff’s four post series on hog trapping has been my favorite.  He has been trying to get rid of some of the hogs on his hunting properties by trapping out some of the sows.  He has gotten a few, but had to pull his traps because of the upcoming turkey season.  What I have enjoyed the most about these posts is how he has included his son in the endeavor.  Reading about his son, and how much he likes going out with his dad, reminds me so much of my own son.  If you haven’t read it yet, make sure to go over and read about Bo skinning his first hog.   That boy is off to a great start!

Thanks, Jeff, for the great posts.  Keep that boy pointed in the right direction!

  1. I love Jeff’s site as well and I hope that once I have kids I can point them in the same direction as Jeff and you have done also.

    Lowcountryhunting is a great blog and one I frequent everyday.

  2. Jeff is on my daily list of blogs I read.

  3. Thanks Kris for the spotlight! I truly appreciate you highlighting my site to your readers.
    And what we really need to do is have you and your family down to hunt with us… Jake could show my boys how to shoot a bow and maybe we would knock down a few of the hogs I couldn’t get in the trap! May is always a great time of year for it.

  4. Thanks Jeff, It would be nice to work that out sometime!

  5. Lowcountry Hunting is a great blog. I always enjoy reading it.

  6. I’m going to check out Lowcountry hunting now.

  7. Good post. I too like reading Jeff’s blog to get a little taste of the southern hunting experience. From what I’ve seen, the line between northern and southern hunting cultures is about an hour-and-a-half south of Washington D.C.
