The Lowcountry Chapter of Safari Club International (SCI) hosted their 5th annual wheelchair and wounded warrior deer hunt at multiple plantations in the ACE Basin. Nemours Wildlife Foundation serves as the host property for the hunters and volunteers to gather, receiving instruction and enjoying the fellowship of meals, before hunting parties fan out to enjoy some of the bounty of deer that the Lowcountry has to offer. A great weather day saw plenty of hunters harvest bucks, does and hogs and the wheelchair hunt continues to grow as a quality option for disabled sportsman.
