Memorable Hunt: My first turkey hunt with my father on a beautiful spring morning in South Carolina is my most memorable hunt so far.

Advice: First, enjoy the hunt! Second, be respectful not only to the locals and people in your hunting party, but also to the animal you are hunting. If you are traveling to hunt, be sure to take the time to understand the culture of your destination, including their beliefs, general customs, common greetings, and dining etiquette to prevent a disastrous faux pas.
