|A Sportsman's Paradise...
Hunting Services is located in the Low Country of South Carolina,
an area well known for its southern hospitality and abundance
of wild game. This area also has very liberal game limits and
lengthy hunting seasons. From an outdoorsman's view, I feel
that I have been very fortunate to live, hunt and fish in this
I have hunted this area my entire life in addition to being
a guide, assistant manager and manager at several other
hunting outfitters in the Low Country area for approximately
30 years. This experience gives me the knowledge to offer
you a quality hunt.

Blackwater consists of several different tracts of land encompassing
rivers, swamps, creeks, planted pines, hardwoods and cut overs
along with some warm and cool season food plots planted exclusively
for wildlife. These plots are planted in cow peas, wheat,
chufa, etc. In addition to these planted food plots, corn
is put out at deer stands on a weekly basis beginning well
in advance of the deer season and stopping well ahead of turkey
season. All of these factors contribute to Blackwater's prime

the Hiers' 10 acre pond located 1.7 miles from the lodge. There

With over 30 years experience as a guide, assistant manager and manager of several commercial outfitters in the low country area, I have the expertise and knowledge to offer you a quality hunt.
