History of outdoors and exploration in South Carolina

South Carolina's natural beauty was first explored by Native American tribes such as the Cherokee, Catawba, and Yamasee who utilized its abundant resources for hunting and fishing. European explorers in the 16th century were drawn to South Carolina's lush forests, fertile soil, and bountiful waterways, marking the beginning of an era of exploration that continues today. In the 19th century, South Carolina became a popular destination for wealthy Northerners seeking respite from harsh winters. They were captivated by the state's mild climate and diverse landscapes - from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west to the Atlantic coastline in the east. This led to a boom in outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. The establishment of national parks and forests in the 20th century further cemented South Carolina's reputation as an outdoor paradise. The creation of Congaree National Park, Francis Marion National Forest, Sumter National Forest among others have provided ample opportunities for camping, bird-watching, boating and more. Today, millions of visitors each year are drawn to South Carolina's natural wonders. They explore its historic plantations and Civil War sites; they hike its rugged trails; they fish its rivers full of bass and trout; they hunt its forests teeming with deer and wild turkey. From mountain peaks to coastal marshes, South Carolina continues to offer unique opportunities for outdoor adventure that cater to all levels of experience. Whether you're a seasoned outdoorsman or a novice explorer looking for your next adventure - South Carolina has something for everyone. South Carolina is a large agricultural state with $2.7B of ag production, and roughly 88.2% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are broilers (chicken), corn and soybeans. When planning hunting trips to South Carolina on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually raise multiple flocks of chickens per year, during the cooler months. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in South Carolina will usually begin planting their crops in early spring and then will harvest their crops in late summer and early fall, depending on weather.
