New Year's Toast to 2016

December 2016 Diver Duck hunt results,
Ringnecks and Lesser Scaup
Cheers to the year that was 2016, and my 8th annual year end post looking at what transpired on the Lowcountry Outdoors blog. I remain thankful for the newsprint publications that continue to carry my byline including 13 years with the Charleston Mercury, six years with the Colletonian, and Tideline too. My regular contributions to magazines like Guy Harvey and Mossy Oak Gamekeepers keeps me sharp on subjects ranging from saltwater fishing to wildlife habitat management. I stay watchful for Field Notes, and as a Field Expert for Drake Waterfowl my duties included filming for Migration Nation TV.

I have 201 blog followers and my social media presence continues on Facebook and Google +. For those within earshot of I93.7 FM in Walterboro, I am on the air with weekly radio updates about the outdoors on Wednesday mornings with Uncle Miles Crosby. Working with SCDNR and conservation groups like CCA and DU always offer a great way to raise awareness for the general public about the traditions associated with hunting and fishing. Weather trends in 2016 ranged from Hurricane Matthew to widespread drought.

December 2016 Quail Hunt
It was a productive year to travel around South Carolina to experience and share what other regions (besides the Lowcountry) have to offer in regards to the outdoors, lodging, dining and hospitality. For the 2016 visits click on Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center - ACE Basin NERR - Abbeville - Seabrook Island - Rembert - Boykin - Kershaw County

I look forward to working in 2017 towards more blog entries about sporting tales from the outdoors, and I remain ever grateful to those who share their stories during outdoor pursuits. Live well in 2017, and keep one's health and reputation in mind at times!
