I lived north of Raleigh for 13 years but hunted in GA instead, since hunting on Sunday was illegal (even bow hunting on private land).N.C. has some excellent deer hunting due to a lot of land being swamp and most condusive to deer. If trophy bear is your quest N.C. is the place to hunt . the world record was taken in N.C. it weighted 880 pounds! There have been many 600 pounds plus taken as well!
Send an e-mail to the below:Thank you for the suggestion, I'll look into those states.
A mate of mine did a guided Whitetail hunt in Wisconsin and had no issues getting his back.
Nice looking fawn! LOL!I lived north of Raleigh for 13 years but hunted in GA instead, since hunting on Sunday was illegal (even bow hunting on private land).
I stand corrected, NC does have some big bucks. On the other hand, in some counties in Eastern NC, running deer with dogs is legal, which can affect your hunt if you're on a neighboring parcel.
Some NC bucks from 2019

I've never been to Maine, but from what I hear, the deer hunting isn't very good. I've actually heard it is one of the worst states in the nation. Now moose is another story.Surprised only one mention of Maine. Deer overlaps bear season in November (1st-27th). Plenty of of registered Maine Guides. Nit Wit's offer is generous.
Vermont Deer/Bear overlap too, but only Nov 14th-22nd.
Easy answer. Take the entire deer to a butcher. During deer season, all the butchers process deer for a real reasonable price.That opens up the next question, obviously I can't eat an entire deer or bear while on holiday so what options are there for utilisation of the meat?
