Eastern NC holds a TON of bear. It is not unlikely to see 4 or 5 in a single afternoon of hunting. The best county for bear is definetely Hyde county. You can still hunt or dog hunt, but remember - baiting is illegal!
I am not sure if bear hunting is allowed on Van Swamp state game lands, but I used to hunt that area 5 or 6 years ago before it became state lands, my father and myself killed several nice bears there. It is located near Plymouth in Washington County.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
