Dressed in a camouflage shirt, Mr. Thomas was booked into the Aiken County Detention Center at 11 pm and remains there this morning.
A SCDNR press release addresses the dates allowed for hunting mourning doves, marsh hens (rails), woodcock, snipe, moorhens, purple gallinules, teal and Canada geese.
