A legislative delegation consisting of S.C. democratic state senators and their friends and family gathered together for a duck hunt at the S.C. Waterfowl Association in Rimini. Mild temperatures and heavy fog are not ideal duck hunting conditions but several hunters were able to make a good showing despite the continued evidence that few migratory ducks have made it to South Carolina thus far. Senator Vincent Sheheen stumped for his gubernatorial campaign and the SCWA staff provided hospitality in the form of an oyster roast and fried chicken supper the night before the hunt. Some of the youth involved in this hunt ended up in duck blind that was besieged by ring necks and other ducks and their exuberance for waterfowling was self-evident after the quality hunt at Willow Oaks duck club.
