i live in Sumter (30 minutes east of ft. jackson). there are tons of hunting and fishing opportunities in this area for deer, hogs, doves, turkey, etc. unfortunately, the waterfowl & quail populations are very scarce. you can kill both here but you'll have more bad days than good. especially with the quail. i only know of one public place to hunt quail at all and you have to stand in line to work your dog in a field. unless you can get hooked up with a club (private land) that doesn't mind you stocking/raising birds, you won't have much luck with upland game. the good news is that you can drive in several different directions and find decent enough shooting for each within a couple of hours. hth, and pm me if you want any in-depth information. (note: ft jackson has a huge wildlife management program for hunting. i think it's like 10,000 acres. i used to hunt it coming up but haven't been over there in 10 years or more. they have some great big game/turkey opportunities).
