Yeah, it’s just been a great day. We shot this hog. Look at that, wow! Lemme hold that thing. Nice!
Well folks, welcome to our show this week. We are back down at Southern Woods and with more of our Chevy partners. If you saw last week’s show, well, I tell you what, we had some great action with some great partners and, again, I always gotta ask you, what’s in your garage? And if it’s not a Chevrolet, then, well, you’re just wrong. I’ve got some special guests that are gonna start off with me this week, gonna be my wing men. On my far right over here is John Thornton. He’s the owner of John Thornton Chevrolet in Lithia Springs, Georgia. Next to him is my good friend Newt Strickland of Bellamy Strickland Chevrolet in McDonough, Georgia. Trey Dettmering is also with John Thornton Chevrolet in Lithia Springs. Guys, I just have to give you the old bump all the way down. Go Auburn Tigers, huh? Huh, yeah? Newt. John, listen. It is a pleasure to have outdoorsmen, but also Chevrolet dealers, who love the outdoors, and I know you guys do. This is what you do, you love doing this, and I love taking and going with you. So I just want to thank you for that. And thank for all that you guys do for all of us outdoorsmen, okay? It is a great, great opportunity for us. And John, you and I, I think. Mr. Newt Hughes is gonna put us on the first covey, and then I’m gonna hunt with each one of you guys, okay? Now, just be easy on me and John out here, okay? It’ll be all good, okay?
Well, guys, listen. Again, I thank you all in the individual. We’re going to do that all, I’ll tell you what. War Eagle.
All right, man. You ready, Josh?
Let’s go do ‘er. What are you thinking, Dixie?
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie. Coming at you and said, “Look, let’ hunt.”
[Bob] Yeah, he did.
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie.
[Bob] Up, there they go! They’re down? Okay, awesome. How many did you get, John?
[John] Three, I think.
[Bob] Okay, that’s all I’m talking about. Whoo!
[Bob] That’s a nice covey rise out of that. Nice covey rise. I know, I know. And the only good thing about that is it’s Southern Woods.
Southern Woods is great.
You know, listen. I have to ask how many years have you been a Chevrolet dealer? You know, your dedication is just remarkable. I mean, I know you put your heart and soul in that dealership.
I’ve been a dealer since 1983. Trey came in and took over a few years ago, so we’re good partners now. He’s a great, great dealer. He’s a lot smarter than I am and does all this newfangled stuff a lot better than I do. We’ve been able to develop a great relationship that thrives when we get out and do things like this. Right after he came to work for us I started a deal going out once a year quail hunting with Ian, my other son-in-law. It’s been great.
That’s awesome. All right, the kids say they’re here.
[Newt] Get a bird.
[Bob] Dixie’s looking.
[Newt] Go, Bill.
[John] Two dead and one sore butt.
[Bob] Gotta be more in there, Bill. Gotta be more in there.
[Newt] All right, Bill’s on point straight in there on that dead bird, so y’all watch him.
[Bob] All right, William. I see him.
Get a bird. That may be clear.
[John] Those birds moved.
[Bob] Bill says we’re done here. Okay.
[John] All right Bob, you saw I needed a little help.
[Bob] Nah baby, I’m right there with you.
[Newt] Dixie, get a bird.
[Bill] We’ll just see if Dixie gets it up.
[Newt] Get it.
[Bob] There we go. All right. Dixie did good.
There’s the other one.
There’s our other dead bird.
That was one I was looking–
[Bob] Yep! Pointing to back, William. Nicely done. Dot and Bill.
[John] Boy that’s real pretty when they get like that, isn’t it?
It is, ain’t it? Dixie makes three. I got a feeling it’s coming your way, William, whoa!
[Bob] I think it went around that tree. I had to have an excuse on that one. Ah, you know, gosh. Goodness. Oh well. I can’t get ’em all.
You know, Bob, sometimes–
I can’t get ’em all brother!
Bob, sometimes you gotta leave a little seed.
You got to, I’m telling you!
You gotta leave seed.
Listen, to us, talk a little about Bellamy Strickland and your years as a dealer and, of course, your a big outdoorsman, okay? I see you all the time. It’s just one of those things. It’s really a pleasure because you guys, you get it, and you do as an individual.
Thanks, I enjoy being outside an awful lot. I was raised in the country. I’m a country boy at heart. I love getting out there. I’ve taught my daughter to get outside a little bit. She enjoys horses and hunting a little bit. And we enjoy being out here with you guys. Chevrolet is a big part of the outdoors, as you know, and it’s been really good to both of us.
I can tell you it’s been great having you as a wingman today, but you know there’s a lot more birds out here so let’s see if we can go get some.
All right, Bob thanks a lot.
Right, man, let’s do it. All right, thanks. Whoa-ho, ah!
[Newt] Get a bird, get a bird!
[Bob] I know Dixie, I know. There he goes, take him, Trey! Oh, nice shot! Nice shot! Whoo!
Listen, you know I could tell. John’s got you out of that dealership, boy. A War Eagle, man!
A little bit, huh?
You know, it’s been a while since you and I have been, not only on camera, but been hunting together. The last time I remember, it was colder than a well digger’s butt in the Klondike.
With snow. Yeah, fourteen degrees. Ice and snow, and we were out quail hunting. Great conditions today.
I can tell you still get out and hunt a little bit.
As much as possible.
Well look, I know you love the outdoors, but you also love Chevrolet, and that’s been your life. Tell me a little bit about your background and history with that, because it really means so much to us who love the outdoors.
I have, I got into it about fifteen years ago with the family business, and have gotten to meet and do things that I never would have thought I would have gotten to do with Chevrolet, and it’s been a great ride.
Well, we got more quail out there, brother.
Let’s go get ’em.
War Eagle, okay. You know, as dedicated Auburn fans, they’re everywhere, they really are. But I have to say go Vols okay? Tennessee, gotta have it. Let’s go, man, we’ll get some more quail.
All right, let’s go.
[Bob] All right, Trey, I got a feeling they’re all going to go your way.
[Newt] Dixie! Dixie, come! Get a bird! Get a bird!.
[Bob] There they go!
There we got ’em! Whoo, they’re still coming out of there! Man! This looks like a water retrieve here. Dixie in a water retrieve. Trey, you don’t see that everyday.
[Trey] No you don’t.
[Bob] Oh, man. Look at that, aw my goodness. There she comes.

Well, folks, welcome back to our show this week. You know, I always love having great friends… Well, you know when you’re Quail hunting you got to have a good wingman, and I’ve got two of the best from the state of South Carolina. Two of my great friends. The one right next to me here, Chuck McDonald.
McDonald Law, this guy keeps me out of trouble. Tiger fan number one, okay, and I’ll tell you what. The next one is Brian White, representative from Anderson, South Carolina. These two guys are great outdoorsmen, they love it. Brian.
Thanks so much for being a guest on the show. And both of you guys.
Thank you. Coming down to South Georgia to quail hunt. Look at your style and your profile.
Brian, you do so much for the sportsmen, not only throughout the state, but you also do it on a national level as well.
That’s right. The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation has state chapters called “NASC.” Matter of fact, we just finished up our annual event here in South Georgia. Brought in people from all over the country to show ’em how great South Georgia is for quail hunting and other types of hunting. Bob, thanks for you for always being a good supporter of ours and the great outdoors, and what you do to–
Oh Brian it is a pleasure. And you know, Chuck, I’ll tell you what. The thing I gotta say about this guy, McDonald Law. You’re wondering, hmm, why has he got an attorney? Well, you never know when you may need one, okay? We always say, 9-1-1, call Chuck.
Well I’m like a Maytag repair man with you. You never get in any trouble, buddy.
You’re just rock solid.
Boy, I got two great coaches. I got two great wing men, I wanna thank you both. Let’s go shoot some birds.
Let’s do it.
All right man.
[Bob] Dot and Bill have got us a bird here, and here comes Dixie.
[Chuck] Deep fryer and they like the smell of French fries.
[Brian] Might have to buy some and try that trick on the way home. Deep fried smoked sausage.
[Brian] You have some pretty dogs.
[Bob] Good spot!
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie. Dixie! Get it, there he is. Whoo, umm! I thought he was coming your way, I’m sorry. Gosh. Man!
[Brian] They should come my way. They know I keep missing ’em so far this morning.
But that’s some good covey rises, I’m telling you! You know, one of the great things about coming down here is bringing friends who love to do this. I have to ask you, I know you kinda do it all. What is your favorite thing? What do you love to do the most?
Well, we’re doing it.
Do you really?
Honestly? I don’t believe I’ve ever asked you that question.
I grew up quail hunting.
We had nothing else to do where I grew up in rural South Carolina other than quail hunt. It was all family farmland around, so that’s what we did. My dad taught me to respect the outdoors. If you take game you have to eat it. You don’t just take to be taking, and you thank God for his creatures every day.
Well, I have to finally ask you what’s coming up special that really pegs the needle for you with the coalition?
I think one of our biggest things that we’re doing now is the shooting sports. The fastest growing population of shooters is women, believe it or not, and we’ve getting high school youth involved in skeet and trap shoots. And just to promote sporting, clays. That’s part of shooting, because the average person doesn’t understand that by buying these guns and buying this ammo, you’re contributing to conservation which is God’s world and that’s what we’re gonna to take care of and provide that access for people to be able to do it. I think that’s the number one issue is access. Go out and buy a hunting license and you’ll preserve the great outdoors.
Brian, it’s been a pleasure, man.
Thank you so much. Let’s go get some more quail.
[Bob] All right, Chuck!
All right, Mr. Bob.
Come on, man!
Wing men on point.
[Newt] Dixie, get a bird!
[Bob] I’ll tell you what, Dot and Bill are working their heart out for us here this morning. And so is Dixie. There we go!
[Chuck] That’s one Brian wounded, wasn’t it?
[Bob] I think that was one of the… That had a leg down on it, okay, well. We got him, anyway.
[Newt] Bring it, Dot!
[Bob] Dot says, “I’m on to the next one.”
[Newt] Dixie, bring it!
Dude, I’m telling you. Dixie says, “Look, Dad, huh?” “Gimme a break.” All right, Chuck, there gotta be more. This could be the big one.
Coming my way.
I know. Oh, nicely done, Chuck. Awesome shot, wow!
Man, I think they’re gonna leave us out front. Take him! Aw, you got the tail end, and he’s coming down!
[Newt] Crash dead, right?
Right, coming down.
Hey, stayed in the wind.
Mmm. That’s okay, Chuck.
I think he’ll helicopter in.
Yeah I saw some feathers fly.
Well, Chuck, listen. I have to ask you, as Newts’s going over there. We’ve been friends for, gosh, fifteen, over fifteen-plus years.
One of the things that I have really become very fond of you is is, you know, you’ve gotten back out into the outdoors. I’m not sure if that’s just because I get you out here, but you grew up that way.
Then you kind of got away from it for a little bit.
That’s right. Absolutely.
And now I got to get you out from behind a laptop, on occasion, to do this.
I love it.
But you do.
Thank you for doing that.
Oh, listen. It’s really so enjoyable to have you out and have you as a wingman. Next thing I gotta do is gotta you on the boat.
Yeah, I need some help on the boat brother.
Okay, now look, I’m going to go ahead. I know that we’re going to date this a little bit, that your Clemson Tigers–
But I have to say this. It’s been a while. The last time we were on a show, South Carolina Gamecocks were on a roll.
They had Dabo up on the ropes. It was 5-0, okay. Now the tales have turned.
Now its 6-0 against the Gamecocks. You guys lost the national championship but you’ll be back.
We’ll be back.
Better team won that night. We’ll be back, we’ll be back.
Yeah, but folks, I have to tell you though. Chuck has the best of both worlds. He went to Clemson and got his engineering degree, and then he went to USC School of Law in Columbia. So he has a balance, but he still leans over to the Tiggers.
It’s a pretty strong lean, but I got a degree from South Carolina.
I haven’t learned the Tiger Rag yet, but I’m sure before the trips over, you’ll teach me.
We’ll sing it.
Okay, let’s go some quail.
All right, good deal.
[Narrator] When we come back, we head to the Sportsman’s Table for another South Carolina-certified seafood recipe. “The Sportman’s Table” is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina-grown meats, vegetables and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina-certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Sportsman’s Table.” Folks, we’re here at Deck 383 Restaurant in beautiful Murrells Inlet, and with me today is Chef Tom Mullaly. He is Chef Instructor and he owns Strand Catering right here in Murrells Inlet. He’s got a special fish recipe for us. I’ll tell you what, this guy never ceases to amaze me. Tom, it’s always a pleasure, man! Before we get you off–
Great to see you, sir.
I’d love to get you on the boat, but I know you gotta tee time you gotta get to.
There’s never enough hours in the day. You know how that works.
I’m telling you. What do you got for us?
Fresh, local red snapper right here out of the inlet. Right in our atlantic waters.
Beautiful stuff, doesn’t get any better than that. So again, as you know, Bob, no bland food allowed. Little salt, little pepper.
Yeah, spice of life. We’ve got our pan piping hot here. Definition of saute is minimal oil and high heat. So we’re looking for that sizzle factor. Always wanna hear that sizzle, here we go! Oh yeah. On a piece of fish like that, I know you guys tell me all the time, “Don’t overcook the meat.”
Correct, there’s nothing worse than an overcooked piece of fish. You don’t want it to be dry, you want it to be nice and moist in the center. So you don’t want to cook it well, well done but like medium and mid-well. It can be a little loose in the center just so it’s a little bit tender.
We’re all about certified SC.
Poultry. All of the great things that you guys put together and you use, not only on the table, but in the restaurant, you’re right.
Always, always, from sea to land. Fresh and local, that’s how we roll. This is one of those items that people don’t frequently use, but you know Chef Tom likes to be a little bit different from the competition.
[Tom] And we’ve got rice plantations going on in our state, so I figured be nice and appropriate to have a little rice on there. And this right here, my friend, I love this. This is just fresh roasted Silver Queen corn shucked off the cob. It’s gonna go great with our fish. Just fresh and sweet. Doesn’t get any better.
Got some carrot sticks.
Yeah, yep. When we garnish, we’re looking for odd numbers. Threes and fives, that type of stuff. It’s good for eye appeal.
Yeah, man. The plate is definitely coming alive, as we can tell. Got a little yellow squash here. Look at all those colors coming together.
[Bob] Yes sir.
[Tom] These are fresh red pearl onions. I’m always up to something. I’m always in competition with myself.
[Bob] I know you are, and that’s a good thing. Right here on the “The Sportsman’s Table,” too.
[Tom] I think it needs a little bit of green. We’re going to put some green in there.
[Bob] And folks, if you want a copy of Chef Tom’s recipe just log onto bobredfern.com and it’ll be right there.
There’s our beautiful piece of local snapper. Oh man, it’s all coming alive, Bob. I can feel it! We’re gonna lace it with a little roasted red bell pepper sauce.
[Bob] Oh, wow. Gosh.
Just makes you wanna eat it.
[Tom] We’re gonna hit it with a little balsamic glaze. Balsamic glaze is just a little reduction of balsamic vinegar.
Okay, oh yeah.
Balsamic vinegar has a lot of natural sugars in there, so when you reduce it down, Bob, on a little medium-low heat it gets a syrupy texture.
And then I think we just need one more color. A little bit of fresh scallion. And there you go, sir.
There we go.
[Tom] Looks good enough to eat.
[Bob] Oh my goodness, Tom, thank you so much. And folks, listen. If you wanna see what’s fresh on the menu, log onto certifiedscgrown.com. Buy local, eat fresh. You can’t do any better. And from Deck 383 Restaurant, right here in Murrells Inlet. We wanna see you right back here again next week on another great edition of “The Sportsman’s Table.”

Had a great time.
And you guys down at Megel Chevrolet, what a mainstay. How many years you guys been down there?
We’ve been there in that location since 2004. Before we were in Dahlonega. So we moved down about nine miles outside of Georgia 400.
Well, I have to tell ya, I remember when you guys were in Dahlonega because way back when I was in college, okay, I went to U.S. Army Rangers School and that was the mountain ranger camp up there.
Yeah, that’s right.
And I remember, okay, Megel Chevrolet in Dahlonega, Georgia so.
Yeah, we do a lot with the rangers still.
Oh yeah, I, that one night on Yonah Mountain.
Comin’ down on one foot and rappel, matter of fact I hurt my heel on that thing and it still hurts me today so, but, you know you guys do a great job for the outdoorsman, for Chevrolet and I just gotta thank you guys.

You’re a pistol. Yeah, there you go. Thank you my friend, it was awesome. Now, I tell you what. For an outdoorsman, you do it all, okay? And one of the things that I wanna talk about right now is the annual dove shoot that actually your daddy, Butch, started how many years ago?
Just got through his 34th year two weeks ago.
And I hate it that we didn’t get to come. Next year, I promise you, okay? I’m gonna come, I’ll come with an umbrella, a bubble.
You gotta come early.
[Bob] A tent or whatever it is.

Folks, welcome, we’re here at Deck 383 in Wacca Wache Marina at beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and I’ve got the sous chef here at Deck 383 joinin’ me today. This is Felicia Davis. She is a former student at the International Culinary Institute here in Myrtle Beach and she’s gonna cook a fish recipe for ya. This is actually one that you did before you graduated, huh?
Well, good. Okay, tell me what we got today?
Today we have a pecan crusted mahi with a wild rice and an orange ginger soy reduction, all local.
Okay, Felicia, what are we gonna do here to this fish today?
We are going to pan sear it.
So I’m gonna go ahead and pick it up and get it for ya nice.
[Bob] That’s a nice cut of mahi.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Now, caught right here off the coast of South Carolina, right?
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Yeah, there you go, okay, awesome. Now how long you gonna cook this for?
[Felicia] It’s about two minutes on each side.
[Felicia] Get it nice and golden.
[Bob] Just a nice brown, okay.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
Now once you get it cooked, are you gonna have to put it in the oven at all to finish it or is it gonna be ready to go?
You can absolutely put it in the oven if you like your fish a little bit more on the rare side, you can go ahead and take it right out of the pan and put it right there. I personally like to stick it in the oven just to get it nice and golden and fully cooked.
[Bob] Okay. Ah, yeah.
[Felicia] Nice and beautiful color.
[Bob] And look at the pecans there.
[Felicia] They add a nice little crunch to it.
[Bob] It does.
[Felicia] With that sweetness, like it’s just.
Now in order to cook this, olive oil, butter, which do you prefer?
I prefer butter, olive oil works great if you’re trying for a healthier alternative.
You can do any kind of nut with this. You don’t have to do just pecans. You can do macadamia nuts, cashews, peanuts, any nut you wanna think about, you can absolutely do it with this piece of fish.
But while that fish is renderin’ and cookin’ here, I gotta ask ya, this is your first job outta school.
Down here at Deck 383.
How do you like it?
I absolutely love it. There’s nothing quite like it. The owners are fantastic people. They really care about their employees and their customers. I’ve never heard anything bad about this place.
See, and every once and a while you can get out of the kitchen back there, okay, if Chef Jermaine’ll let ya and look at what you can cook over, huh?
Absolutely, we have wonderful sunsets. Great backdrops for dinners. If you wanna come in for lunch, beautiful weather, great breeze, there’s nothing quite like this place.
No there is not. All right, we about there, Felicia?
Okay. You know mahi mahi is a great fish, okay, and not everybody thinks that that’s only in Hawaii.
But that thing is caught right here off the coast of South Carolina so. Okay, now what are we puttin’ this on?
So we have a wild rice here that was also locally grown.
[Felicia] But we’re just gonna place this right on top.
[Bob] Oh wow.
[Felicia] Just like that. And then I’ve got a ginger soy orange reduction here.
[Felicia] That we’re just gonna drizzle right on top.
[Bob] Oh great.
[Felicia] Nice and around it.
[Felicia] And there we have it.
There we go, mahi mahi over local rice right here at Deck 383. Felicia, thank you so much and congratulations on your first job here.
Okay, what a better place. I’d love to go to work here every day.

Folks, welcome back to the show. Down here at Southern Woods Plantation. Quail is king and Chevy trucks and Kurt Newbruck of the Chevy marketing manager for the southeastern region’s gonna talk to ya about, well, a truck that I’m excited about and I love drivin’ it, is my 2020 HD Duramax High Country. Kurt, man I gotta tell ya, Chevrolet has hit the target on this one.
Hey, we’re excited about this truck.
Well, tell me, you know, there’s a lotta changes in this thing, okay. Not from just the ride and the drive but there’s a lotta stuff that you guys did to it.
Yeah, I mean you can see from behind us here, we’ve got a 19 and a 20 as well but bigger and bolder truck for sure. We got a new 66 gas engine with 464 foot pounds of torque. We got the new Duramax diesel with the 10 speed Allison transmission. That’s got 910 foot pounds of torque and it’ll tow up to 35,500 pounds and it’s made to work. You can see trailering mirrors are standard on all trims so it’s ready to do the job.
Well, and you know one of the great things about it, you gotta tell everybody about the camera system, okay? ‘Cause that is just, that is a great piece of addition.
Yeah, that advanced trailing technology, it’s got eight cameras and 15 views so hopefully you’ve seen the ads on TV but it does a great job and a lotta safety involved with that as well.
Well, you guys have outdone yourselves. I’ve enjoyed havin’ you guys down here behind these bird dogs, okay. It’s always a pleasure to hunt with ya and, you know, I just can’t thank Chevrolet and all you guys so much for what you do and the dealers, okay? Show casin’ the dealers on the show today. It was great to get them out. It’s, you know, they do and they love the outdoors, just like you.
They do and Chevy trucks is there every step of the way and we’re proud to be a partner.
Well, folks, I tell you what. That’s our show from Southern Woods down here. Got a question I’m gonna ask you before we go, what’s in your garage? If it’s not a Chevy Silverado HD Duramax, well, maybe you need to get on down to your local dealer and you find one for your very own. As I always like to say, each and every week, the outdoors are my passion, I want it to be yours too. We’ll see you back here again next week on another episode of Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.
Bob heads again to Sylvester GA and Southern Woods Plantation to hunt quail.
[Announcer] On this week’s Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, Bob heads to Sylvester, Georgia to do some quail hunting at Southern Woods Plantation! And on this week’s Sportman’s table, we feature another South Carolina certified recipe! All this, and a whole lot more, and it begins right now!
Oh man, It’s been a great day. We shot this hog. Look at that, wow! Lemme hold that thing!
Well folks, welcome to Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine. This week, we are back down in South Georgia and I’ve got some special guests, and I’ve got a great guide. I’ll tell you what, when we are at Southern Woods Plantation in Sylvester, Georgia, I always like to bring some of my best friends down here. And I’ve got two of the best that I know in the country who love bird hunting, who love the outdoors, and let me introduce the guy right here. To my immediate left, there’s Mr. Jim Rockmore. He is a CEO and President, he is a Georgia boy actually, but he lives in Orangeburg, South Carolina. He is the CEO and President of a Super-Sod, and you all have got grass in your yard, he probably helped put it in there! Then, the guy over here on the other side is the Commissioner of Agriculture for the great state of South Carolina. A good friend of mine for years, I’ll tell you what, this guy absolutely SC certified and I tell you what, he’s got so many great programs that’s Mr. Hugh Weathers. And then on the other side over here is our guide premier today, Newt Hughes from down here Southern Woods Plantation. I tell you what, guys, I just want to thank you all for having the opportunity to come down here and be on the show today.
Good to be here, Bob.
Hugh, I tell you what, I just have to ask you before we get started here, I know your love of the outdoors as a youngster growing up, okay. I know all about this guy too, we’re going to ask him. From your perspective, just how important is your job now as the Commissioner of Agriculture? And agribusiness and all those kind of things, but I mean that’s one of the premier things that you have done since you’ve been in office.
Well, it’s where agriculture happens, outdoors. For so many of our farm families across the state who make their living in agriculture in so many different ways. Really, I’ve got the best job in the state. I get to work with these people, to experience their livelihoods, and help create opportunities for them. But you are right, the outdoors is where it happens in agriculture, no matter whether you are growing sod or sweet corn, and just getting to work with those farmers is a real privilege.
Well, and you brought a good friend of yours that you’ve grown up with from Orangeburg right here. Jim, I’ll tell you what, it’s just a privilege to have you join Hugh and I today, and I tell you what, you’re a guy after my own heart. Shooting a 410 Browning, it don’t get any better than that, okay, you got Browning, the best there is. But you know, Jim, just growing up here in Georgia and then moving over to South Carolina, of course, that’s where home is. You’re such a big outdoors man, okay, and I know it’s so important to you as well, conservation and what we are about to do today.
Well, it is, there is no better way to spend the day than behind a bird dog with good friends, and it’s just great. You just look around at the peace and tranquility and the beauty of the Lord’s creation. It’s just unbelievable, and to be able to be outside and be a guest of both of y’all is just a special privilege, and thanks for having me, I look forward to a great day with Newt, I know we’re gonna have a good time and kill some birds.
We are, that we are. Hugh.
All right, brother! Let’s get behind them dogs Bob. Bob, it’s all up to you now! All right folks! But I tell you what, Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, Southern Woods Plantation, great friends! Guys on my right and my left, listen, stay tuned cause I’m telling you it is going to be some action you’re always going to remember. Find them! Oh look at there. Oh my goodness! Oh wow! There we go! Look at that! There’s South Georgia snow. Get reloaded boys!
[Hughes] Bring it in, Bill.
There you go, take it! Nicely done Jim! Nicely done! Yeah! Yeah, they always do that! They always do that! Got two down there. Good shooting, guys! Good shooting! Great shooting! Let’s get reloaded ’cause I think the boys say there’s more in here. A little more in here. Here he comes, we got to wait on the man. They may have got out of there. There he goes! Nice! There he goes! Get reloaded, boys! Get reloaded. There we go! Take him! There he goes, Hugh, get him! Nicely. There we go, all right, awesome! Awesome! All right. Jim, now I got to tell you man. Both you guys, huh? You’re out a lot here, I can tell! You guys have been getting on the circuit a little bit! Listen, tell me just real quick about Super-Sod and what that’s meant to you your whole life. I know this outdoor business is huge, but that’s something I want our viewers to know about because the business that you’re in, we all need grass. Look at that! Hugh’s still knocking them down! I’ll go talk to him in a minute. But tell me a little about the business.
The Super-Sod Company started in Lakeland, Georgia, 40 miles south of here. I moved to Orangeburg 35 years ago. We’re in three states; North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. We ship more sod than anybody in the world. We shipped out 18,000 tractor trailer loads this year. It’s a big logistics business. Most of our grass goes in somebody’s yard. Our team is all from Aycock. A hundred people are unbelievable how they sell, how they deliver, how they take care of it. And like this business it’s quality and service if you wanna stay in business. And I think that’s been our key to success. This is my 51st year working with the company. I started planting grass when I was 13. So 51 years, I’ve loved every day.
[Announcer] Stay tuned after commercial break we head back to Southern Woods for some more quail hunting on this week’s Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine!

[Bob] I know, buddy.
Take him! Nicely done, guys!
[Hugh] I shot a dead bird in the butt!
[Bob] That’s what I’m talking about right there!
[Hugh] I shot a dead bird.
Woo! Good shot, listen let’s take a second. We’ll let, Jim see if he can find some more birds out there. Listen, talk to me just a little bit. You are 15 years in as the Commissioner of Agriculture. What’s so important. I know agribusiness is important to you. That was one of your mainstays. Let’s talk to all the folks out there for just South Carolina.
South Carolina is still a rural state. We’ve got Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville. Those economies are thriving. But agriculture is still our state’s largest industry. It happens in all of our rural counties. Our focus is to provide more opportunities for agribusiness to expand in those counties. Either by a farmer adding something to his or her mix, to vertically integrate that way, or by attracting industries to come to this state, back to South Carolina and use farm products, and build up that way. We done some things pretty aggressive, in order to encourage that. I’ll tell you what I’m most pleased with from Governor McMaster and the commerce department and others. They are beginning to recognize what we’ve known in farming just how important it is. But we’ve got great partnerships and I think that will just bode well for the future. Again, growing this industry. We think we will reach a 50 billion dollar impact by 2020. So what do we do? We set our sites on fifteen years down the road and see in the year 2035 when I’m rocking on the porch in a nursing home. What can that impact be, and how can we get that next generation of farmers to see it just as a great career choice?
[Jim] Which way you wanna take us?
[Bob] Go that way, or swing around a little bit?
[Hugh] Wanna pivot this way?
[Bob] Here we go.
[Hugh] Okay, I just didn’t know.
[Bob] All right, let me get right in here. Are we good, guys? All set?
[Jim] All set.
All right. Man, that’s beautiful points. Hugh, I got a feeling they’re coming your way.
That’s their best chance for survival.
No, that’s not true! See I told you! There you go! Nice shot!
That breeze had that tip blowin’ a long way.
[Bob] Listen, well, I’ll tell you what, and that was an excellent shot now! I have to compliment you on that one. Because that thing zipped and dived. Oh my goodness!
He did a flyby and he buzzed the top.
[Bob] There he goes! Take it Jim! There we go! He’s falling! There you go! You got credit for that one! I tell you, come on, man! Nah, that’s alright!
[Announcer] When we come back, we head to the Sportsman’s Table for another great recipe from Deck 383 in Murrells Inlet in South Carolina. The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina grown meats, vegetables, and fruits. Make sure your food is South-Carolina certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Folks, welcome to Deck 383 here on Wacca Wache Marina in Murrells Inlet. We’re back here on the Sportsman’s Table with another great recipe. Jermaine Austin, he’s our main guy down here on Deck 383. Got a special shrimp and grits recipe for you today. This is absolutely awesome. Jermaine, it’s always a pleasure my friend! – Thank you, Bob. Thank you for having me back.
Well, let’s get on with this, man. ‘Cause I tell you what, shrimp is always in season in South Carolina!
Especially, fresh local shrimp
There you go, okay.
Fresh local shrimp. All right, how are we going to cook this up?
This is one of our recipes here that’s outstanding. We serve this and people just love it. It’s a little country recipe. Our shrimp and grits, and it’s the bomb.
Okay, all right, man.
So we are going to start off with Bob, we’ve got some fresh South Carolina-certified onions and green peppers. We’re going to throw those in here.
[Jermaine] Oh yeah!
[Jermaine] Let that kinda start cooking a little bit.
[Bob] Aw man, when you start hearing that sizzling down here on Deck 383, woo, mmm, that’s what I’m talking about!
[Jermaine] You don’t want to cook these too long, because you them a good al dente. You don’t want it too soft, you don’t want it too firm.
[Bob] I gotcha, okay.
[Jermaine] So we just let that cook–
[Bob] Now we’ve got that in butter, as opposed to–
I like cooking with butter, ’cause it’s a little more flavor to the…
Yeah, there ya go. Plus, you know, when you come to Deck 383 you’re not down here trying to worry about losing weight, man. You’re down here to enjoy the food! Yeah, there you go!
Get good food, enjoy the view!
So we got our onions cooking a little bit, onions and peppers. We can go ahead and add our fresh, local shrimp. I use 2125, but you can use 4150, 1620–
Any size you want?
Any size you want.
Yeah, okay, that’s good. All right Jermaine, what else we got to go in this shrimp and grits?
We’ve got our last two finishing touches for the shrimp and grits. We’re gonna throw a little chopped bacon.
[Bob] Okay, bacon always makes everything good!
[Jermaine] Oh, you never can go wrong with bacon. The smell of bacon and shrimp mixed together.
[Bob] Oh goodness.
[Jermaine] And let that saute a little bit and cook down. And then we’re gonna be adding what?
[Jermaine] Fresh made, brown gravy.
[Bob] Oh, goodness.
Made fresh right here at Deck 383.
Get that gravy in there.
This is a different twist on shrimp and grits, Jermaine!
Oh yeah, a lot of people use a tomato, a touch of ham gravy, some people use a cream gravy. I was raised on the brown gravy.
[Bob] Well I tell you what, that looks great! Oh wow! No wonder folks come down here to eat your cooking!
[Jermaine] Yes, sir! And we are going to top it off with a little green onions there.
[Bob] Deck 383 cooking, makes you good looking!
[Jermaine] Oh yes sir! Why do you think I’m so beautiful?
I know that! I’m telling you, man! Thank you for the recipe today and hosting us here at Deck 383 and folks listen, I will tell you, come on down to the Wacca Wache Marina down here at beautiful Murrells Inlet at Deck 383 and log on to certifiedscgrown.com and see what’s fresh on your menu as well as what’s fresh on the menu down here.

I’ve got a whole new group of South Carolina guys from up and around Columbia and I’m going to introduce them now. They’re going to be my wing men on this segment of the show. The guy on the far left is Duncan McIntosh, he’s the Vice President and legal council for Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina. Next to him is Tripp Jennings. He’s our MD, our Doctor. He’s actually the son of Buddy Jennings, who you’ve seen on the show before. Of course right here, Grayson is Buddy’s brother-in-law but he’s actually a construction manager for Impact Consultants there in Columbia. Then I’ve got Bobby DelRossi, he’s our guide. And who do we got here?
That’s Little Bear.
Oh man, Little Bear! And of course, my long time friend here Buddy Jennings the former Director of South Carolina Parks, Rec and Tourism. I tell you what, we just got a great Carolina Contingent down here in South Georgia on our quail hunt today. I tell you what, guys I’m ready to go. I think the boys have got some points for us, okay? You guys are styling and profiling today.
We’re all friends of Bob’s, F.O.B.!
F.O.B. Friends of Bob’s! Okay, well now we got to go do this! Duncan lets me and you go get this covey, Bo, you ready?
All right man, let’s go do it! Woo!
[Man] You’re shooting the 410 Bob, we’ll defer to you.
[Bob] All right, come on up boys. Nice points. You know Duncan, I’ll tell you what, sun’s shining in South Georgia… Hup! Them things got going, in a hurry! Gottta be more in there.
[Man] Come on up, Bob.
[Bob] All right, you ready?
[Man] OK Zeke, get ’em out. Find em’ Zeke! Find em’ Zeke! There’s one, kill him!
[Bob] Nicely done, nicely done guys! Nicely done. Man when they get up, they get down. Oh there we go, more in there. Get ready!
[Man] Get ’em out Zeke. There he is, kill him!
[Man] Good shot, Bob!
[Man] Boy! Close Jill, close Jill, Jack! Get in there and help her Jack! Close! Go get her Jack, close! Good boy, Jack!
[Bob] Maybe? What do you think, boys?
Check it, Zeke.
That it, Zeke?
I think that’s it boys. All right, come here Tripp, Duncan. Come here guys! Let’s talk a little bit while Bobby gets reset now. One of the great things, get over here Tripp, that I love is having great sportsmen behind bird dogs, okay? And you guys have done y’alls work. Now tell me a little bit about what Blue Cross and Blue Shield is all about. Everybody knows it’s insurance, it’s that sort of thing and it’s protection and medical care. And then I’m going to get to you in just a second. Because having the medical expertise on staff there, and the legal expertise, you guys are a great team. Well, we are and I appreciate you asking Bob. It’s interesting, Blue Cross of South Carolina is a smaller blue cross plan, and we are only in South Carolina. That’s the rules of the association, we use the name and the mark. But we’re a bigger company because we do a lot of back office processing for the government and for other Blue plans. We’ve got what, 15,000 employees? It’s a big company for a small footprint. And it’s getting to one of the few corporations left in South Carolina, and it makes a difference to the community.
Well now Tripp, okay this guy can get us out of jail. Okay, you can make sure that we’re healthy when we get there. But as a medical doctor, okay? And what you do now at Blue Cross? Tell me just a little bit about how important it is what you provide these guys.
Well, I think certainly from the standpoint of traditional insurance, thinking about just having that, in case something happens. But we’ve really transitioned over the last few years to say what can we do to keep people healthy. And how can we help the community, the state, and even those that might be… The corporation’s based in South Carolina, but they have employees outside of the state. How can we keep them healthy? And so that’s one of the big things we focus on, value-based care, trying to move away from fever service, but really helping the employers which still pay for the majority of insurance in the middle of the nation. How can we help them keep their employees at work, happy and healthy.
Well what’s so heart-warming for me from both of you guys, you guys are big outdoorsmen, and I love that, but you are also good shots, okay. So it’s nice to have wing men on the right and left, who really love and do what I do, and I want to thank you both. Listen, we’ve got more coverage out there, okay? All right, let’s go get them okay? Cause we are set up here! Look at that setting back there! The lakes, I hear the mallards on the pond.
[Man] Ya’ll good?
[Bob] I think we’re good! There they go!
[Duncan] Pick them up Zeke!

[Bob] Yeah, yeah. That covey was busting up, actually.
[Bo] See how it’s spread out.
Yeah, yeah, I got some over there. Bo, some good shooting there, let’s talk a minute. Face the camera there, Newt is getting us reoriented here I want to talk to you just a little bit about your passion for bird hunting for years. I mean gosh, we go way back together. Not only in the insurance business but the passion for quail hunting. And I know you’ve got a story to tell about that and tell all the folks out there just how you got here, your love for this sport.
It all started with my grandfather. I was eight, nine, 10 years old bird hunting. He had dogs, he retired early, he’d get me out of school, tell the principal I was going to the dentist. No, we were bird hunting, and did that, and that was just great, that started it all.
Well you know, Mike, and I tell ya, I so appreciate our business relationship with Dawson Taylor Insurance because again we couldn’t do what we do without the backing and insurance that we get from you. Because unfortunately today, God forbid we’d ever have accidents, but you have to have that, and you do it so well. I mean, from a business relationship this is what you do.
I appreciate that Bob.
And you know
I enjoy what I do.
Well you do, and your advice, your consult on what to do and how to do it as far as that’s concerned has just been instrumental to me over the years, and I gotta tell, folks, there’s a story here behind this, why this guy is on the show today, Mike had the opportunity some number of years ago to order, to buy an opportunity, and win the chance to come and hunt with us on camera. So it’s been a while, you just had hip surgery. You’re doing good, you’re getting back.
I’ll move around but it’s coming.
You are, but now you’ve got out in the field, and it’s just an honor and a pleasure to have you out here.
Well it’s just a pleasure to be here Bob. Thank you so much.
Well listen, let’s go get some more birds.
Let’s do it.
We’re going to see how John does on the other wing over there, okay?
Let’s do it.
Let’s do it man, you ready John?
[Narrator] Stay tuned after commercial break. We head back to Southern Woods for some more quail hunting on this week’s, Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.
[Narrator] Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine is being brought to you today by Chevrolet, the official vehicle of Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, by the South Carolina agriculture department.

[John] I got 12 to nine.
[Mike] Dix. Dix, get a bird.
Man, that’s pretty, look at Dixie. Whoa, look at that! They just didn’t give us a chance.
That one had me twisted.
Those birds had us.
I did okay, and folks listen. When you’re doing TV, and I know you’re saying why didn’t y’all shoot those birds that is what we call safety birds, okay. And there’s no bird, no accident, worth a quail. So we’re not going to turn around and shoot. So please, yeah, we do that for TV but it’s for safety as well. There’s more birds out there where that came from. We’re at Southern Woods Plantation. You’ve seen this before, okay, and you’ll see it again. There’s plenty of quail down here to be had and we’re going to do it. All right guys, I’m sorry, We’ll get more.
We’re ready, get a bird Dixie.
[Bob] Coming right back at us, Dixie says ain’t nothing I can do about it, dad, look at that well, that’s okay. At least we’re getting some good quail flying footage. That’s okay.
[Man] Another one in there.
[Man] Must be.
[Man] No. There it go, up! Ah, that’s okay, they’ll be there for another day. All right guys. The covey rise was good.
What we got?
That one, John, take it! There we go! Nicely done, nicely done. All right, before we reload and take the next shot, come talk to me now.
Now look, you’re passionate for the outdoors, I know you don’t get a chance to quail hunt that often, okay, when you do you’re good at it, okay. But duck hunting is your passion.
But is duck hunting always been a passion for you?
Yes, I got it honestly, my uncle was a game warden and he drug me around since I was about nine, 10.
Well, you know John, you’re one of our great Chevrolet partners. You guys provide all of those dealerships across the country, and yours in Dawsonville is kind of special, I understand. The way you’ve guys got that outfitted for the outdoors, being that’s the way you are. Kind of describe the entrance to the dealership. When customers come in, what do they expect?
It’s cozy. No, we like to think we’re the fin, fur, and feather dealer for Chevrolet. We have a nice facility, 45 foot ceilings, fireplace, and animals.
Yes, got mounts all in the show room. I mean, that is really kind of special. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that before, okay, and that’s just one of those great things. That’s your passion.
A lot of people say that.
But they take it good, and its been real rewarding for us. And Chevrolet has been good to us, we’re just great to be partnered up with them.
Well I just can’t thank you enough for joining us today down here at Southern Woods, and this is your first place, first time down here being on the place. So we’re going to talk more about that, because I want to get your feedback of just how great a place I think it is, but I want to get your take, but we got more coveys we gotta get.
Well, Benji has done a great job from what I’ve seen so far, it’s just a great facility.
And you know, the birds are, they’re tremendous. And it’s just a wonderful place. We’ll talk more about that in a little bit. I think there’s some more birds we gotta get. All right man, all right guys, we’re ready.
Get a bird, Meat.
[Bob] Nicely done guys, nicely done. I didn’t have a shot but I think there’s more in there. Get reloaded.
[Man] I got one down behind.
[Bob] John, that was good shot you had out there. Mike, that was a great shot out left.
[Man] It fell down when I shot it.
[Man] Come, come, good girl.
[Bob] Take it John. Good shot. Here we go. Hey I’ll retrieve this one. Here we go. Get it Mike. You tapped him! There we go. All right. That looks pretty, boys. And then Meathead is ready to roll. Meathead. You gotta laugh, no, he doesn’t look like no meat head. Look at him, hurting his feelings.
[Man] Come here, Meat.
Take him Mike. They’re all about you Bo, Ha!
[Man] Another one in there.
[Man] It came right back.

[Narrator] Coming up next we head to The Sportsman’s Table at Deck 383 in Murrell’s Inlet, for a South Carolina certified clam recipe.
[Narrator] The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state be sure to buy South Carolina grown meats, vegetables, and fruits, make sure your food is South Carolina certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome to this edition of The Sportsman’s Table. Here we are at Deck 383 on the intercoastal waterway down in beautiful Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina. My chef and my guest host today is Chef Jermaine Olson. He is the executive chef here at Deck 383. Tell you what, you got to come down to Wacca Wacha Marina, check them out, we got another great recipe. Jermaine, man.
Thanks for having us in.
Good to see you again.
Now this is something kind of a specialty.
Yes, it’s not on the menu, but we run a lot of daily specials, so I come up with all the kind of things, new, different, for the people.
Okay, well, tell me about this one, because, I’ll tell ya, this one is kind of special, pay attention folks.
This is a special one, here, this is my clam casino, Deck 393 style.
We start out with some local clams, some sauteed onions and peppers, South Carolina certified grown. You got some bacon and some Parmesan cheese.
Okay so how does this recipe go?
It’s real simple, you just bake clams in the oven, probably eight to 10 minutes on 350 until they open up. You want to keep the meat and the juice from the clams.
So I take the juice and I put it with the vegetables when I caramelize the onions and the peppers.
Just reduce that down a little bit, which is on the recipe. Just take our onions.
And peppers and we just top it off.
[Bob] Oh I gotcha.
[Jermaine] Yep, just top that
[Bob] Each little clam.
[Jermaine] Yep, just top it all, see you got the juice. I like using the clam juice, some people like using chicken stock or whatever.
[Jermaine] I use the clam juice because it’s the natural element of the clam.
[Bob] That makes sense, okay.
[Jermaine] I just hit it with that, Hit it with a little juice here. Then we’re going to top it with your bacon.
[Bob] Gotta add bacon now.
[Jermaine] Can never go wrong with lots of bacon.
[Bob] Wow, and you know you guys run a lot of great specials down here at Deck 383.
Oh yes, and everything we use is local and South Carolina certified meat–
[Jermaine] And vegetables.
[Bob] Now, the plan for this, it’s all ready to go, it’s gonna go in the oven?
Go in the oven, pretty much in like, three to five minutes. Just want to let the cheese and the bacon melt into the clam.
And you’re ready to go.
You’re ready to go.
Okay, all right.
[Jermaine] All right Bob, this is our finishing touch right here on Clam Casino at Deck 383.
[Bob] Wow, those things smell great, now you’ve got just butter?
Yeah, just regular drawn butter, but you can also use cocktail sauce, tartar sauce, garlic butter, whatever you want to dip your clams in.
Oh man, that’s another great special here at Deck 383, Jermaine it’s always a pleasure–
Bob, thank you.
To be with you.
I appreciate it.
I tell you, when you’re styling and profiling, everybody gets a big grin on their face.
I hear you, I hear you.
