Yeah the dismal swamp is close to one of the places we have permisson to hunt.

It will be are first attempt at a bear hunt in N.C. We may also go to W.V. for bear in October. Then plan on hitting N.C. in December most likely.

When do you guys plan on going.

Are you guys hunting a farm with corn fields?

I know the one place we got permission is small only about 100ac. but the guy is going to plant corn in the field for us and he says bear come into the corn every year.

We were planning on later in the year figuring that the bears would be more attracted to the corn because other food sources would be depleted.

Its going to be interesting because this will be our first attempt at a do it yourself bear hunt.

Damm, bee hives and honey. Thats we I'd want to be. Course I don't like bees but I think I would be able to figure a way to deal with it.

You guys going with archery equipment or gun?
