Turkey season opened in South Carolina this week, and like years past James Earl Kennamer, bagged a bird the first day. "Hunting is part of my life," he said, as he waited for a flock early Monday in Estill. "It's my touch to nature." But these days when Kennamer straps on his cammo pants and loads his double barreled Zoli 12 gauge, he can't help but think of all of hunting's regulations and limits, and he fears for the future. The lifelong hunter now supports a ballot initiative in South Carolina to change the state constitution and give hunters a permanent "right to hunt." Kennamer says "It will keep local entities from passing legislation that would stop us from having a place to go hunt."
