My son and I are going to Fairfax,SC in a couple of weeks to hunt deer and hogs. It is supposed to be during the rut down there. Has anyone on here ever hunted in SC? If so, what was your opinion of it?

Lots of experience there,grew up there.It will be VERY flat in that area of SC.Hunting could be great,good or bad,just like any other place.That part of SC is LOADED with deer.Rut? I don't think so ,but who knows.

I have...with no desire to go back.

This is only based upon my personal experience but baiting (it's perfectly legal in SC) seems to be the much-preferred method of seeing/killing deer and just isn't my cup of tea. Nothing against it, I just choose not to partake. Like the prevalence of high-fence ranches and use of feeders in TX; just how they do it there.

I hope you and your son have a super time; the low-country is a beautiful region.

I've hunted about 2 hours northeast of Fairfax. The particular area I was in didn't seem much different than West & Middle TN.. except it was just flatter.

I've hunted dog drives, which I didn't really care for a whole lot. Also sat in stands over feeders... but never had any deer actually show up at the feeder. \:\)

Saw what I thought was a BIG buck there right as last legal shooting light was coming. I shot.. and discovered it wasn't as big as I thought. Just a thin 8pt - the low light was playing tricks on me! It was actually the last buck I've ever killed... been holding out for a "real" shooter and haven't seen one!! That was 6 years ago.

I hunted near Bowman SC several years ago. We were on a very swampy, thick property. They had cut long lanes extending out from a hub with a shooting house in the center. We hunted over corn in many of the stands. Think Texas with more mosquitoes. There were pretty good deer there too.

Thanks, guys. We are both looking forward to it. I took my older son deep sea fishing as a 16th birthday trip, and my younger son wanted to go on a deer hunting trip. We shoot plenty of them around here, but the trip will be something different. Maybe even get a hog too.

The peak of breeding is typically Nov. 1st-5th. You will be hitting it just right while they are still seeking and chasing. Lived there 11 years and hunted the Piedmont near Edgefield and all over the Lowcountry. I can remember years that I hunted 65-70 days and never killed a buck later than Nov. 13th.
