2013 Kelleytown Baptist Church Wild Game Dinner
Kellytown Baptist Church

Last year I attended the Kelleytown Baptist Church Wild Game Dinner and it was a real treat. You may remember the blog I posted about the event. If you’ve never been you should check it out. There were several activities that were fun for the youth and competitions for everyone. I’m talking about archery competitions, skeet-shooting competitions, a BB gun range and even competitions for kids.  The guys at Kelleytown do a real good job at putting this event on and the attendance of the event is a reflection of the quality of the event.

When the afternoon activities get over then everyone goes inside for a great meal (last year they had some good alligator on hand). Next up will be a duck calling demo by fellow WeHuntSC.com blogger Blake Hodge and then Hank Parker Jr. will be the featured guest speaker. So if you’re in the Hartsville area this coming weekend and want to attend a quality outdoor event then be sure to check it out.

Early November Food Plot Update
WeHuntSC.com - Intro to Game Management Blog Series
As we continue on with the Intro to Game Management Blog Series we're about done with all the "work" that we have to do with our Tecomate Seed Food Plots. Now it's just time to watch them grow and hunt over them! 
I went out and took some pictures of the food plots one afternoon. These pictures show the plots about 3-4 weeks after fertilizing them. They are looking good and green! With frost starting to get here now and the leaves falling off the trees it won't be a long time until the deer are spending a lot of time in these food plots! I think they turned out pretty well and they've still got some room to grow.
Below is a photo gallery that I created with updated pics of each food plot. I hope to post one more update later in the season to give you another look,and hopefully we'll have some deer in these plots as well!

Now that we've covered food plots thoroughly we'll be moving on to other facets of Game Management that one should consider when thinking of managing game. Stay tuned!

Lancaster County 2011 Ducks Unlimited Banquet Post Game Report
    WeHuntSC.com - Ducks Unlimited Raffle Ticket at the Lancaster County Ducks Unlimited Chapter Banquet
Last week I went to the Lancaster County Ducks Unlimited Banquet and before I even got into the building I could tell that the chapter was putting on another great event. As I pulled into the parking lot I had to drive to the very back just to find parking space. The place was already packed and I thought I had arrived a little early. Just driving in I saw a lot of ATV?s out front on the grass lawn in front of the building plus I saw a very large, vinyl covered trailer that read ?Jo Jo?s Barbeque?. Even though I parked way in the back I was able to smell the barbeque cooking when I stepped out of my car. It was going to be a good night indeed.
I got closer to the door and saw some guys wearing Chesterfield County Ducks Unlimited shirts! It was WeHuntSC.com blogger Gavin Jackson and some other members of the newly formed Chesterfield County Ducks Unlimited Chapter. If you?re in Chesterfield County and want to be a part of it then just contact Gavin. I believe the upcoming meeting is this Saturday, but I believe Gavin is going to blog about that.

Inside the event there were a ton of people and you could feel the buzz in the air.  The event had DJ Justin Funderburk on hand playing country music in the beginning of the event. A couple of vendors had booths set up to the left at the back, the silent auction tables were to the right, and the live auction items were on tables to the left. At the front of the room, just in front of the speaking podium, were more prizes that would be raffled off. WinnTuck was in the house as well as Blake Hodge and the Wrecking Crew and the smell of Jo Jo?s barbeque filled the room. 
I was speaking with some fellow Pagelanders when everyone started eating. It didn?t take us long to file in line either. As we got through eating our Jo Jo?s barbeque (which was good!) the event had begun. The auctioneer was going a mile a minute as different items were auctioned off. It was really neat to see and experience the live auction. There were some great items on hand for auctioning and bidding. Every year I keep thinking I?m going to bid on those Corn-hole boards that they have?they look really good.
The items sold pretty quickly with some going at heated bids. As you would imagine the guns were hot items along with some of the paintings/prints. Half way through the evening WeHuntSC.com blogger and world champion duck & goose caller Blake Hodge gave a calling demo. You could see eyebrows raising all over the building during his demo.

If you want to experience a top-notch Duck Unlimited banquet then be sure to check out the Lancaster chapter?s event. It?s top notch. I enjoyed the evening and look forward to going back next year. Congratulations to the chapter for putting on such a well organized event.

As you are most likely aware, Tecomate Seed & BuckYum have partnered with us on a blog series we've dubbed "Intro to Game Management". We want to go ahead and throw down the disclaimer NO WE'RE NOT PROS, WE'RE NOT BIOLOGISTS, OR ANYTHING CLOSE TO IT!  We're just some good ol' country boys and we hope to learn more about game management through our field trials, research, interviews, and these blog entries.

We're calling the series "Intro to Game Management" because it's an introduction of the concept of game management and it's just as much as an introduction to us as it is to anyone else. We're not trying to teach game management, but rather through this series we're journaling what we're learning about game management as we try to take the right steps in managing game on our land. We don't have tons of money to throw around, but we do have some elbow grease and sweat equity that we'll put in and hopefully it will pay off. Again, we're on a learning mission here and are merely documenting what we learn.

Throughout the series we hope to interview some people who do really know what they're talking about to give some pointers on game management so that we can derive some take-aways or best practices for managing game. Hopefully this information will be valuable to you just as we hope to gain knowledge as well.

We feel that raising awareness for Game Management in South Carolina will help out the future generations of hunters and potentially the overall quality of deer in our state.  We all want a quality deer herd in our state and to reach that goal there must be a shift in the culture of hunters and the way we view hunting and game management. This blog series is just one step in the cultural shift.

Thanks for joining along and if you have some information or even want to write a guest blog along the way feel free to chime in. After all this is a resource for everyone so if you want to contribute you are more than welcome to!

Last year we did the Tecomate Seed Food Plot Journey where we documented a year's worth of food plots from a beginner's perspective.  We learned a lot through that journey and we're continuing to plant food plots this season with hopes of learning more and creating an environment from which we'll grow quality deer. Though, this year the series will go further than food plots.
Installing and having Tecomate Seed food plots is one of the ways we hope to create a good environment for the deer in our area, but that's not the only steps we're taking and it's not the only facet of game management. We?re also going to throw in some mineral sites and give our deer a supplemental feed. The supplemental feed we'll be using is called BuckYum and boy do the deer love it! We put some out at the end of last year and the deer literally had it gone within days.
We?re going to be explaining more about the Tecomate Seed products as well as giving more details about BuckYum in future blog entries, but for now we just wanted to communicate the news of the blog series.
We're pumped to learn more and hope that in some way this blog series will help you as well!
