WeHuntSC.com is excited to host the WeHuntSC.com Hunter?s Night Out which will take place on Saturday, May 1st, 2010 at First Baptist Church Fellowship hall in Pageland, South Carolina. We received a lot of feedback from the ?Food Plot Journey? with people wanting to know more so we?ve asked the organizations involved with the Food Plot Journey to come and present and they?ve all agreed! The subject matters for the evening will be food plot creation + maintenance and game management. So if you?re interested in food plots or quality deer management, then round up your hunting buddies and come on out and join us. The event is free! The event will start at 5:30 and will last around 1.5 hours given the # of questions that get asked. We will also have some food and drinks afterwards for anyone interested.

We are excited to announce that GearFrenzy has partnered with us to sponsor this year?s ?Turkey of the Year Competition?! GearFrenzy is an up and coming online marketplace for all things hunting gear. GearFrenzy has a lot of video from some of the outdoor pros on their site and they specifically talk about the products they use within the site. If you haven?t checked out their site, you should give it a look at www.GearFrenzy.com An excerpt from the GearFrenzy web page:
At Gear Frenzy, we believe choosing the right gear shouldn?t be hard, but with so many options, it can be difficult to know exactly what to buy!
To help you get ready for your next trip, we are teaming up with the best hunters in the industry, bringing you expert advice straight from the people you know and trust. Not only can you see the gear they use, but you can also see firsthand how and why they use it. It?s an experience like no other.
Get invited into Michael Waddell?s hunting shed, sit in the stand next to Tiffany Lakosky and do laundry with Mark Kayser! These are just some of the experiences you will have while at Gear Frenzy. And the best thing about it? We are just getting started!
So now that you know a little bit about them, feel free buy products from their web site and tell them that WeHuntSC.com sent you!
This past weekend we took to the woods and shot some HD videos that will be edited, produced, and come to the site soon. Trying to take myself serious in front of the camera proved to be a little difficult for me (and may prove difficult for you as well). Though, one of the neat parts of how we?re working our videos at this point is that we ask site visitors to suggest video ideas and contribute information to videos that we may not have included. We ended several segments saying ?If you do it differently or have something interesting to contribute, just let us know and we may come out and film you?. As the goal of this site is to be an information hub rather than a site to promote videos of the WeHuntSC.com team, we hope to get out and around the state to get video segments from different areas and see different ways of doing things. So be sure to let us know if you have any ideas or insight for future videos.
If you aren?t use to having a big microphone hanging over your head, light reflectors in your face, and a camera right on you?it can be a little intimidating. We went around and shot some videos on stand placement, stand location, trail markers, and sign in the woods! Whenever they get finished, we?ll publicize them on the site. I?m really excited to see what Jason and Yellow Cape Communications can create. I know whatever it is will be quality as I?ve seen a lot of his work before + he shot video of the WeHuntSC.com girls on the site.
Hopefully he?ll reduce the glare off my bald head! With that said, all I we can do for now is wait on the edit? more to come later.
We recently held the video shoot for the video spokeswomen for our WeHuntSC.com. The shoot was a neat experience and I think the footage will turn out well on the site. Jason Fararooei of Yellow Cape Communications ran the show and he did a very professional job.
The footage was shot in HD with a blue-screen background. Normally this would have been shot with a green-screen background, but due to the hues of green in the camouflage shirts, we could not use the green-screen.
The shoot took about 3 hours in total and we had 3 different females come in for the shoot. When the footage posts to the site, you will see these three ?video-spokeswomen? on random site pages. Mostly they will be giving short intro messages to the pages. The video will be flash-based, transparent, waist-up shots.
Also, if you need some high quality video work, be it for the web , TV, or DVD?Yellow Cape Communications can do the job. Check out what they?ve got going on at www.YellowCapeCommunications.com or contact Jason at [email protected]
Below are some visuals to give you an idea of what went on at the shoot.
The weather is starting to turn to cool, football season has started back up, and deer hunting season is just around the corner. As fall appraoches, I am excited about many things, especially the launching of this site. I look forward to seeing what my fellow South Carolinians are up to and hearing the many stories and seeing the pictures that will come in during the next few months.
After researching, a few of us noticed that there was no single location where hunters in South Carolina could go to share stories, tips, information, and images of the game harvested from the SC outdoors. Thus, this site was created to fill that void. So feel free to send us your feedback, thoughts, & suggestions about the site. We'd love to hear from you.
So we got us a Bushnell Advantage Game Camera this off season and have been very pleased with it so far. The only trouble is that the raccoons seem to be getting the best of our deer corn! It looks like they've enlarged the family in the off season too! Check out this picture of the new family.
Also, we caught the 6 pointer who appeared to have a little run-in with one of the raccoons in a different shot. Would have been neat to see what else went down in the seconds that followed this photo
The clock is ticking until September 15th and I hope you all have as much anticipation as we do to get this season underway.
Until next time...
