2013 Black Swamp duck hunt in the SRP

This annual end of season duck hunt brings together waterfowl hunters who share a common love for the outdoors and forestry. Hampton County and the Savannah River Preserve (SRP) are home to Black Swamp where the woodies love the hardwood swamps along the river. The woodies fly early and the mallards fly later, keeping those in the duck blinds on the lookout for a shooting opportunity. A cold morning temp of 30-degrees greeted the hunters and their canine companions. Guide Bill Mixon delivered us to the duck blind and helped us get to the country breakfast afterwards. This is a fine way to end another duck hunting season!
