As a hunter on a guided deer hunt with us in the low country of South Carolina you will be hunting on over 7500 acres of land from low country hardwoods to planted pines as well as the edges of farm fields. The most common local crops are soybeans and corn, with a limited amount of peanuts and cotton. Due to the abundant habitat, long term food sources and deer management practices, our deer population has exploded here in the low country of South Carolina. Nearly all of Paradise Valley's hunting lands have been managed on a long term basis in order to allow our bucks time to mature before being hunted.
We have over 150 deer hunting stands here in the low country to pick from and we manage them all year long in order to not over hunt any one area or heard of deer. Our track record of success in South Carolina guided deer hunting has proven these practices to be effective in creating high success rates for mature bucks. All stands are baited with corn and many are located on food plots. The plots are planted with lots of varieties to keep a choice for the deer and turkeys to browse and feed. However, some of our best stands are in the woods on roads and shooting lanes. Most all the stands are large enough to sit two adults comfortably, have roofs, sides, and shooting rails for you to help steady your gun and make that perfect shot and clean kill your animal. Most shots will be 100 to 125 yards, but you can shoot up to 200 yards in some stands.
The first day of your South Carolina deer hunt will begin with a wake up knock on your door at whatever time it is you need to get dressed and serve yourself a continental type breakfast of juice, coffee, milk, and doughnuts or granola. We will head out in time for you to be in your stand approximately 20 minutes before daylight; people typically sit until 9:30 or 10:00a.m. After the morning hunt our hunters are served a full course breakfast. Following your meal you have the rest of the mid day to relax, nap, enjoy the fully equipped game room, or fish. The afternoon hunt will be for the last 2 to 3 hours of daylight, which we have found is typically the best time for deer movement in this area of the low country.
