    I have never hunted NC but I always see people on the site talking about Lily Pond Creek. I’m sure the people who have hunted there will chime in
    When times are tough and flocks are small, take your time and shoot them all.

    I have hunted with Dock Boone at Lily Pond Creek for the past 16 years and I'm going back next Sunday for year 17. The terrain is great (mostly agricultural fields with some fire cuts) the deer quality is as good as it gets on the east coat and the folks running the place are top notch. Take a look at his Facebook page to see some of the deer taken so far this year. What you will see is not uncommon. I can't comment on pubic land hunts but for outfitters you cant go wrong with Lily Pond.

    Lily Pond Creek. Great operation, good people, lots of deer. Its clean, comfortable and they keep you well fed. Generous bag limits and a short ride from NJ unlike Montana or out west if you've ever been. Lily Pond is the type of place where youll want to go back year after year. There are plenty of guys on this site that head down every season, Pm any of us who have been there for more detailed info or any particular questions you may have. Snell ( Art) on this site has been going to LPC for a long time and would be a great source of first hand knowledge for ya. Good
    You can do a lot more for the environment by carrying a rifle then carrying a sign.

    Great hunting here Gruntmaster! How are the guys doing? Tell them I said hello.
    Ask Charlie Sahana and JKotys. They just killed a bunch of nice ones (2 buck limit) with their group in north eastern NC. Every county holds its share of big bucks and I counted 21 deer my first sit on opening day. There are deer density maps you can look up online.

    I lived there and obviously hunted there. I found fellow hunters so nice and had more invites to hunt then I had time to hunt. Extremely hunter friendly state.

    I've had decent luck with finding property. I have a combined 66 acres on 2 tracts just within walking distance (or 4wheeler) of my home. A few more properties within a 50 minute drive. A friend has given me permission on their 300 acre piece in VA but I haven't asked for an address since I haven't had a chance to bring it up again. Haven't run into antis but most land is hunted by family. The deer in my area are plentiful but it's not like hunting NJ, the deer are very skittish and will run into the woods if you slow down while driving by them.
