    A Must Read for Any Sportsman or Conservationist

    Often game violation cases make the news, with bloodthirsty tales of egregious over-hunting, poaching or selling of illegal species. But you almost never hear of the hours of stealth, soul-sucking mosquito swarms or frostbite that went into catching the criminal in the act. Veteran South Carolina Game Warden, Ben Moise, the cigar chomping, ticket writing scourge of Lowcountry fish and game violators, has written his memoirs about his twenty-four years patrolling the coastal woods and waters of the Palmetto State. A bit Havillah Babcock meets Roscoe P. Coltrane, Ramblings of a Lowcountry Game Warden has a good many stories about how most of the time the poacher gets it, but how sometimes the outlaw sticks it to The Man. From frequent bouts of pneumonia due to wintry pre-dawn stakeouts, to search and rescues in hurricane-force winds, the focus of the book is the author's steadfast and unrelenting desire to bring to justice those who ran roughshod over the fish and game laws. Moise takes the reader on a narrative journey from his beginning days, his formative experiences, court trials, surveillances, and embarrassments all the way to the very moment of his retirement at sunset on the last day of the 2002 duck season. It covers conservation, environmental stewardship, hunting, fishing and general badassmanship. Moise caught drug runners, deer shiners, bootleggers, bad liars and those sportsmen who were either too lazy or too greedy to abide by the state's fish and game laws. From busting judges, representatives, sometimes his friends, and once, even a blind man, he got the reputation for being mean enough write his own mother a ticket. This is a must read for any conservationist, hunter, sportsman, tree hugger, campfire talker or lover of a good yarn.
