Share BBQ and fixings before the fire at the Kimbel Lodge with a coastal crimefighter. Ben McC. Moïse served with distinction as SC game warden for nearly a quarter century, patrolling the coastal woods and waters. The colorful, cigar-chomping, ticket-writing scourge of lowcountry fish-and-game-law violators discusses his treacherous and often hilarious job. With a lawman's eye for fine details, a conservationist's nose for the aroma of pluff mud, and a seasoned storyteller's ear for the rhythms of a good southern yarn, Moïse recounts his efforts to protect the lowcountry landscape. Moïse also speaks of evolving attitudes and changing regulations governing coastal conservation.
In recognition of his achievements in law enforcement, he was presented the Guy Bradley Award by the North American Fish and Wildlife Foundation in 1990 and the Order of the Palmetto by South Carolina governor Carroll Campbell in 1994. He is a contributor to the Charleston Post and Courier, Charleston Mercury, Garden and Gun Magazine and author of Ramblings of a Lowcountry Game Warden.
