  Michael Lord

We?re excited to have Michael Lord as part of the WeHuntSC.com blog team.  Michael is a very talented singer, speaker, hunter who uses all of his skills as a ministry. Michael hails from Spartanburg, SC and runs Michael Lord Outdoors which is a ministry that seeks to engage outdoorsmen with the life changing message of Jesus Christ.  Michael Lord is an avid outdoorsman who loves God and the people He created.  This is Michael?s 20 year anniversary in ministry. 

Michael speaks and sings at outdoor events, wild-game banquets, camps, and everywhere in between.  If you need a speaker or worship leader for an event, you can get in touch with Michael at his web site, on Twitter, and on Facebook.  If you went to the 2011 Sportsman?s Banquet at Second Baptist Church in Lancaster, Michael was on hand leading worship at the event.

Michael?s blogs are going to be somewhat different in that they will mostly be video blogs?which some refer to as ?vlogs?.  I know that I?m pumped to see what Michael will bring to the site. I won?t spoil Michael?s own introduction for him, but I just wanted to communicate the addition of a new blogger to the team. Join me in welcoming Michael to the site.



Goose Hunting with the Wrecking Crew - Early Season
Wrecking Crew
Team WC with 19! 

This September weather has been brutaly hot and really tested our endurance and love for the sport. Though, with plenty of crackers, gatorade, and bug spray, we've managed to do pretty good this season. We were able to get some more youth interested in the sport of waterfowl hunting while having their parents spending more time in sporting good stores, purchasing their needs, and some of their wants! We worked with them in the field, discussing firearm safety, decoy placement, conservation, and of course "calling". As we always say, youth are our future!  

We hunted lakes, grain fields, and pastures/ponds this year with pretty good success and utilized these type of decoys: shells, full bodies, and floaters. When field hunting, we used "layout blinds" to stay hidden, especially while trying to video.
I would like to thank everyone who hunted with us, and look forward to "getting down", and doing some more "Wrecking"!
I would also, like to thank our continued sponsors, Drake Waterfowl, Winntuck Waterfowl Lanyards, and Decoy Outdoors.
Below is a video showing our team in action: Wrecking Crew early season episode 1. 
I hope everyone enjoys it and is looking forward to colder weather, with wings committed.
Good Hunting

WeHuntSC.com - Marcus baiting the hogsMy nephew lil' Marcus loves to tag along with me anytime I go to the woods whether it's just to bait deer, hogs, move stands or whatever it is I need to do at the time. Recently the Dr. said that he needed to lose a little weight and be more active so I asked my sister if I could take lil' Marcus with me to check hog traps a couple times a week. She of course said yes and so the outings began.
I started mixing bait and had the traps were already out so I had to established trap line which was a long walk. Perfect for what we were trying to accomplish. Keep him interested in the outdoors and get some good exercise. Every Wednesday and Saturday we traveled to Pageland, SC to bait and check traps. Twice the hogs got out and several times we got there and the traps were tripped or deer got in and jumped out.
At one point he said to me after we checked the last trap they had broken out of "Uncle Johnny we're never going to catch any hogs are we?" and my heart sank. I hoped that he wouldn't lose interest in our time together in the woods. So I over baited the areas way more than usual in hopes of pulling a big herd in and hopefully catching one or two. That was a Wednesday.
That Saturday i picked him up like usual and we headed on our hour journey to the property to check our traps. The first 2 were tripped... no hogs. So we walked all the way back to the truck to head to the other side of the property and check the last trap. I noticed his head down the whole walk back disappointed yet again. There we were headed to the guillotine trap. I prayed the whole time we crossed that huge field, "Lord please let there be hogs in this trap for my nephew... please lord bless us with some hogs so he won?t remember this unsuccessful time with me in the woods... please lord let there be pigs in the guillotine trap". I Just kept repeating myself with his little hand in mine making that long walk.
As we got to the edge of the field I noticed the trap door had been tripped. "Could this be it? Did we catch some?" Then i saw movement in the trap and like a I kid I hollered "We caught some buddy!!" He started yelling and ran to the trap too! We were like a bunch of 5 yr olds jumping around and hollering!! Haha!! As we got closer there were 5 piglets in the trap. I thought to myself, Ahhh crap, now I've got to kill a bunch of baby pigs in front of him! He was so jacked up about catching them i didn't wanna ruin the moment so we just watched them for a bit, took some pictures and then made the call I didn't wanna make to my sister.
"So we caught some pigs... yeah really... well I?m gonna shoot them... yes I'm gonna shoot them.... no I can?t just let them go... I'll make sure he doesn't see it.... I promise... ok... bye". You can imagine her part of the conversation!
So after I explained to him that we couldn't keep them, I took him about 50 yards down the trail, set him behind a tree and told him I'd call for him when I was done. I dispatched them quickly and we started back to the truck.

I told Li'l Marcus that he was uncle Johnny's lucky charm and no one could take that smile off his face for days! Marcus still asks me to this day "when does Wednesday season start?" lol! Since then we've lost that little property but I'm working on another trap line as we speak so we can make some more memories together. I can't wait.

Ledford Outdoors 2010 Annual Youth Dove Hunt
  WeHuntSC.com - Ledford Outdoors 2010 Annual Youth Dove Hunt Flyer
  See large version of flyer

This past weekend the wife and I went on a quick vacation to the beach?yes, Myrtle Beach!  We had planned this trip for a while and it turned out that Scott Ledford of Ledford Outdoors was going to be at the Bass Pro Shops store in North Myrtle having sign-ups for their upcoming, annual, Youth Dove Hunt.  Since we were going to be in the area, I told the wifey that she could shop while I looked around BassPro and talked with Scott about the details of the event.  It wasn?t hard to get her to say ?yes? to going to any kind of mall. 

We caught up with Scott around mid-day on Saturday and got some details of Ledord Outdoors? upcoming event.  On September 11th, 2010 Ledford Outdoors, along with several sponsors, is putting on a very neat youth dove hunt in Horry County, SC.  Youth ages 9 ? 15 are eligible to win this exclusive dove hunt.  Ledford Outdoors is going to draw 15 winners from the entries and these 15 youth & teens will be the ones who win and get to go on the dove hunt.  So how do you enter?... you either sign up on Ledford Outdoors? web site or you fill out the form and register at Bass Pro at Myrtle Beach if you?re in the Myrtle Beach area.  Keep in mind that, to participate, a parent or guardian must be on hand with the youth and the parent/guardian must hold a valid South Carolina hunting license!  Youth and teens can register for a chance to win a spot on the dove hunt from August 6th ? 22nd.  Also, you don?t have to be from SC to register, you can win from another state, but you would have to buy an out-of-state license for the hunt if you win from another state.

The best part about this event is that it is directly geared towards the youth and there will be give-aways, food, entertainment, and tons of family fun.  Scott even mentioned where they will be giving away a shotgun and maybe more than one.  This event has been backed by some good sponsors who are enthused about encouraging youth to hunt so I?m sure it will turn out to be a positive event that 15 lucky youth/teens will really be happy to win. 

Below is a quick video I shot of Scott talking about the event.  If you are a youth/teen or if you know a youth/teen who would love to get in on a hunt?then forward them the link so they can register for a chance to win!
