|Early deer season in S.C. begins August 15|
Deer hunting season is an annual endeavor for many, and for some it becomes a lifelong passion. Deer hunters come to respect the time they spend in the outdoors, and embrace the rites of passage that come with fair chase hunting. The final weekend before deer hunting season brings three local events together for the first time, with the Lowcountry QDMA banquet on Thursday night, the ACE Basin QDMA banquet Friday night and the Hunter’s Day Out sale on Saturday.
The 7th annual Hunter’s Day Out at Westbury’s ACE Hardware in Walterboro is always on the final weekend before deer hunting season, and the secret is out that this is the one day of the year that stands above the rest for retail deals, giveaways and helpful info too. The doors open at 8 a.m. and what’s not to like about the first 100 customers getting a free T-shirt with a sporting design on the back. The One Day Sale continues until 5 p.m. and registration for door prizes like a tree stand and game camera will go on all day.
Don’t forget you can listen to the Lowcountry Outdoors report on the radio every Wednesday morning with Uncle Miles at 7:45 when writer Jeff Dennis shares what is making headlines in the Outdoor Sports section of The Colletonian. The broadcast on 93.7 FM will also be shared with listeners again on Friday morning at 9:45 a.m. and the weekly reports will include more news about events, hunting seasons, Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Reports and much more!
