One of the finest Thanksgiving hunting traditions, after dove hunting, is man-driving for deer. A property in Yemmasee that is under Quality Deer Management conducts a holiday man-drive in order to help thin the doe population each year. About 30 standers took up watch in the woodlands after being strung along by the plantation manager. While most hunters did not see any deer, a 6-point buck and four does were harvested before the mid-day rain settled in.
