I recently moved to North Carolina and have heard great things about the black bear. I am looking for a good spot to hunt public land, preferably close to Ft Bragg. I am currently looking at Bladen Lake due to its proximity however they only have 3 day a week hunting. This is an issue as I can't get away during the work week. Are there any better places nearby that I can try my luck at or am I better off working the Bladen Lake scene one day a week on Saturdays. Also, is calling a viable option for bears in NC? If not what are better options? I appreciate any help.
