Re: NC Bear Hunt

Grew up around Lenoir Boone blowing rock

Yes we have bear but the best biggest bears is on the coast of NC in and around Hyde and Dare Counties on the coast. Those bears can go 400 pounds and larger.
Go to game and fish site and get the bear harvest report by county.

The record was harvested on the coast we usally share the record with Penn State and NC every few years.

As for size our bears are smaller and less in numbers in the western part of the state and terrain is steep and rough.

Re: NC Bear Hunt

Do you mean PA? Never heard of PN. Pike county is about 45 mins away from me.

Anyone able to recommend an outfitter on the coast?
