Checking out the Francis Marion national forest via vstrom

It was in the 70s Saturday so we decided to go for a ride through the National Forest. The plan was to check out the visitors center and look for some geocaches while exploring the dirt roads. As soon as we got to the national forest it became apparent that it was hunting season. There was hunting trucks along the roads and packs of hounds. No big deal I thought. I can still cruise down the dirt roads. I just won't go into the woods. We kept passing tucks of hunters and they didn't give us the usual friendly wave that you get from most people in SC. I didn't think much of it and kept going.

On the way out I saw a DNR worker at a check station. I asked him how the deer hunting with dogs worked. He explained that the packs of hounds chase the deer through the woods and then when the deer crosses the road the people sitting on the trucks shoot at the deer! On the road! From the bed of a truck. This blew me away on many levels. One people hunt from the road while sitting in the bed of a pickup, and two I was pretty much riding right through people hunting. It's like there was a guy in a deer stand and I decided to park my bike right in front of him. Well that would explain the lack of friendly waves.

Here are some pics from our ride. I wish I got some pics of the dogs. We kept running into them while I was riding doen sandy roads. They were friendly little things.
