North Carolina is a “natural bait” only state and therefore we use corn and peanuts to lure in our bears. To assure multiple bears are using our stands when you arrive, we bait year round. With so many bears using the same baited areas they will stay active all day long moving from stand to stand to get their chance to feed.
Hunters will stay in the Carawans Lodge, located in Swans Quarter, NC. Early each morning, while still dark, we will go to our stands to maximize your hunt with early morning movement. Since the bears are active all hours of the day, each hunter will take a bag lunch and snacks for the day. If a bear is harvested, your guide will be just a radio call a way. If you choose to not harvest a bear that day your guide will pick you up after the sun has set, allowing you ample time to see that big bear.
Shooting Distance: Most shots are 50 yards with the longest shots at 100 yards.
