As you are most likely aware, Tecomate Seed & BuckYum have partnered with us on a blog series we’ve dubbed “Intro to Game Management”. We want to go ahead and throw down the disclaimer… NO WE’RE NOT PROS, WE’RE NOT BIOLOGISTS, OR ANYTHING CLOSE TO IT! We’re just some good ol country boys and we hope to learn more about game management through our field trials, research, interviews, and these blog entries.
We’re calling the series “Intro to Game Management” because it’s an introduction of the concept of game management and it’s just as much as an introduction to us as it is to anyone else. We’re not trying to teach game management, but rather through this series we’re journaling what we’re learning about game management as we try to take the right steps in managing game on our land. We don’t have tons of money to throw around, but we do have some elbow grease and sweat equity that we’ll put in and hopefully it will pay off. Again, we’re on a learning mission here and are merely documenting what we learn.
Throughout the series we hope to interview some people who do really know what they’re talking about to give some pointers on game management so that we can derive some take-aways or best practices for managing game. Hopefully this information will be valuable to you just as we hope to gain knowledge as well.
We feel that raising awareness for Game Management in South Carolina will help out the future generations of hunters and potentially the overall quality of deer in our state. We all want a quality deer herd in our state and to reach that goal there must be a shift in the culture of hunters and the way we view hunting and game management. This blog series is just one step in the cultural shift.
Thanks for joining along and if you have some information or even want to write a guest blog along the way feel free to chime in. After all this is a resource for everyone so if you want to contribute you are more than welcome to!
