FIE BIG DAYS
IN SANIE SWAMP r
(By Roscoe Turner, Aviator, 1st Lt.
Not lost, or a forced landing; just s
a pleasure trip. Having flown in a
most every county in the State of C
South Carolina, and after, having
picked it out of twenty-two (22) a
others wo have visited by air, ya
partner, Mr. Runser .and I, are now
fully convinced that this State is not
surpassed, even if equalled by any d
other in the Union, as a regular all
around place to live, offering most ti
any thing the heart can desire, in any
vocation, or walk of life.
As the guests of Mr. Sam Barron, ti
a prominent business man and sports- b
man of Manning, S. C., and the Black t,
Oak Hunting Club, of which he is
president, Mr. Runser and I are quite t(
sure that South Carolina possesses H
most any thing in the world. We 1
have studied the commercial possibili- b
ties, and we have now learned what ii
the big swamps contain, which we
have seen from the air many times, ft
and always pointing the nose of the ti
ship skywvard to got plenty of alti- .
tude before crossing, as they are not
very inviting for an airplane to land I
We accepted the invitation to go on i
the annual Thanksgiving bear and cl
(leer hunt over a month ago. So at .
the appointed time, we returned with
many curiosities in our minds, as we
had never experienced any hunting
of big game. I tried to picture a
deer or bear rushing through the
woods with a pack of (logs at his d
heels, and just how I would feel if
he was coming my wiay. Shooting a
gun loaded with buckshot was some
thing I had never experienced, as
the range is very different from that I
of a rifle, which I had learned to
use in the army, but not saying how m
well I could shoot with it.
Everything was set and we were
off for the Santee Swamp, early Mon- d.
(lay morning, November 21. After a
drive of several miles in Air. Plyler's i
high powered Chevrolet automobile, s,
we arrived at the edge of the swiamp. u
The darkies were waiting there to r(
help carry the supplies. So after F
transferring all the luggage from our 1
car and the others in the party to si
our backs, I was in formed that five j
miles more was ahead of us, before I)
we would be there. We started oni
our way through the cane brakes i
and over the swampy wet places via
foot log. Air. R. D. Plyler, as he was B
nearing the end of one of the logs, ;
iformed me that lie was an expert p
log Walker, and about the time the i
word left his tongue, off he went into
the water, almost shakiig me off, as
I was followiig close behind. Any- 1
way we contnued the march and ar- tI
rived at the river. There we were
transported across to Black Oak isl
and iml a motor boat and a canoe.
Blawk Oak Island is leased by the p
hunting club of the same ntrwie. [t g

sousands. Many pi'ominent men from

Iso shooting at squirrels. Among the
)uvenir shirts - are those of the
[dyor and police judge of East
range, N. J.
Now back to the story of the hunt,
I the tents were well arranged and
)on we were all out cutting cane
- our beds. Then a little time
tsses and supper was served. The
irkies are quite some cooks that
ere with us, all of them taking par
eular pais to see that no one went
ingry while there. Then we were
formed as to the rules and regula
ons of the Hunting Club and num
rs drawn for the stands we should
ke next day. Early next morning
reryone wias out the (logs rearing
go. Each man lplaced on a stanat
id (logs started. The stands would
ve been very lonesome had it not
,en for the woodpeckers continually
immering on the dead trees. Some
theni were such heavy hitters I
lly expected to see a branch of the
ee fall off, as it would shake quite
little. The squirrels also were very
entiful. It was not out of the or
nary to see as many as six or ten
one time. On one occasion a lit
e fellow junped up on a stump
ose by and barked at. me as if to
iy "I dare you to shoot.'" I can
member when my father would take
e hunting with him and Walk for
halt' day killing not over a half
>zen and considering it I good huiint.
Getting back to thle deer hunt, the
iy passed very fast for me antd on
-turning to the camp with a guide
it was io trouble to get lost, a
rge buck was hanging up. York
ack, one of the colored boys, had
!en the lucky one. Some of the boys
d for his head, others the feet. I
anaged to get one of the feet for a
uvenir antd considered it quite a
-ize. Next day, which was Wednes
y, the same course over again and
