Wateree Ducks Unlimited Banquet
Several shotguns were raffled and another few were auctioned off, including a Fausti 12-gauge, a Browning Gold Trigger, and a Beretta 686 White Onyx in 28-gauge. A 64-quart Yeti cooler was another highlight, as well as some local artwork such as a limited edition print of "The Rock," which depicts the remainder of the first railroad bridge that connected Camden to Columbia as it sits today in the Wateree River.

This guitar is an example of the diversity of prizes that are sometimes outside of what you might expect to traditionally find at a Ducks Unlimited event.
