    Our club's roads will be under water for quite awhile. I hunt SC just over the NC state line along the Waccamaw River basin. Best club I've ever been in, even when we get flooded roads for a couple weeks here and there.

    The deer and pigs will be on the high ground, even though they can swim better than an Olympian. As soon as the pressure changes after the storm, if you can get to your high ground spots and the wind is favorable, I think the deer will be up and moving.

    With the woods being destroyed, trees were blown all over, the flooding etc, it will be difficult to pattern the deer for a couple weeks.
    Good luck to ya.

    I had a shipment that had to get to a landfill near Columbia Monday morning. Any guesses what it costs to get 1000 pounds of freight moved when there is an air and ground stop of freight going into the area? I was amazed that our freight broker found a guy. When he called and quoted the cost he said are you sitting down? The reply was are you sitting down, send the driver to pick it up.

    She’s pounding us pretty good right now. Power poles laying on the ground here in Fayettville. 80,000 folks her 72,000 without power. Oh and in keeping with forum rules (I bow hunt deer) that should do it.

    Hoping and praying for the best for all of you. Having been through several typhoons in Micronesia I can relate a little. Even a cat 3 storm can peel the tin off of a roof like a can opener.

    When this is all over, if you know the name of any local charities that will make max use of a donation I would like to do more than hope and pray.
