I just purchased about 20 acres of land that backs up to lumber company land in Beaufort County NC. There is 8 acres of woodland and a 10 acre corn field. I will be getting ready to put up tree stands next week. I have 2 boys 13 and 12 who will be helping and hunting with me. My plans are to place three stands backing up to the woods facing the corn field and use them for bow season. I also need to put up a box blind if I decide to rifle hunt. Any of you guys hunt small tracts like this? How is the deer population in Beaufort County? Any help is appreciated.
New to the board and have a few questions. I am bringing my 2 boys 13,12 down from NJ to hunt the last week of December in Northhampton County. We turkey hunt and deer hunt here in Jersey but none of us have ever gotten the chance to kill a deer. Seen tem just never been able to close the deal. So for their Christmas present we are spending the 26th to the 30th of Dec. in Northhampton county hoping 1 or all can get their 1st deer. As I looked on extended forecast temps are going to be in mid 50's and overcast is that too warm for late season NC deer? I am anxious but also a bit nervous with the warm weather that our chances to connect will be slim due to warm weather. Any guidance is appreciated. Greg
