Sportsmen spent plenty of time in the outdoors over the Thanksgiving holiday celebrating open season on migratory birds and renewing time spent hunting deer with family and friends. One such deer hunt occurred in Yemassee on the day after Thanksgiving with a good old-fashioned man drive. The organizers of the hunt utilized about 20 man drivers and roughly 30 'standers' to push the deer around on the 33-degree morning. Safety was foremost in the minds of the hunters and while there were some reports of errant shots - a total of three bucks and two does were harvested - helping the landowners achieve some of their deer management goals while providing a dose of hunting heritage for hunt participants.
