DUCKS – BUCKS AND LONGBEARDS! If you have been looking for a hunting tract that has it all this 115 acre gem on Contentnea Creek is right for you! This very secluded offering is loaded with wild game, and is just 7 minutes of Wilson city limits! Enjoy fishing the beautiful frontage on Contentnea Creek, hunt ducks in the flooded timber strip, and enjoy deer and turkey hunting in the hardwoods.

115 Acres of Hunting Land For Sale in Wilson County NC! This property is a hunters dream, and covered in timber, corner to corner. The property consists of small sections of mixed pines and large sections of semi-mature hardwoods, all ranging from 10 years of regrowth to 30+ years of maturity. This variance in timber allows for great bedding areas for wildlife in the pines and thickets, and the hardwoods create open wildlife travel corridors, and of course food sources when acorns and other mass are falling.

There is a well-maintained road system that can be used to travel through, and around the perimeters of the property. There is a very attractive amount of creek frontage on Contentnea Creek, on the western side of this tract. Deeded access allows you to drive from Evansdale road all the way back to Contentnea Creek. The deeded easement can be viewed at the following link (http://rod.wilson-co.com/External/LandRecords/protected/v4/SrchBookPage.aspx)

The road system is not only a convenience for traveling through the property, but would do well with ladder or tripod stands, allowing for a great line of sight shot on deer crossing in those curves in the road we know they use for cover.
Multiple rubs, scrapes and tracks were found on the property. The avid bow hunter can ease into his favorite hang-on stand to catch that mature buck slipping the edge of the dark swamps between the acorn producing hardwoods and his bedding area.

Aside from deer, turkey and potential bears, this tract is a waterfowl hunter’s paradise. This property is perfect for the die-hard duck hunter who is at home when hunting the gray timber swamps of the south. During the initial viewing of the property multiple groups of Wood Ducks were bumped off the swamp that runs the entire northern side of the tract and geese paired up for the Spring, were seen skirting the tree tops.

Hidden in North Carolina’s coastal plain, Contentnea Creek is unknown to most fishermen, but locals know it well and consider it a treasure. After all, the name Contentnea is derived from a Native American phrase meaning “fish passing by. (http://www.northcarolinasportsman.com/stories/ncs_mag_5803.htm). During the initial viewing of this tract, a group of gobblers was seen crossing the road that runs through the property. Turkeys are abundant in this part of the county and the opportunity to catch a strutting Tom on the grassy roads, or coming off the roost from the creek or swamp bottom, is wide open to those who enjoy the thrill of chasing those smart Eastern swamp birds.

This is a killer deal for the avid outdoorsman looking to find an affordable hunting tract less than a hour from Raleigh, NC! Nearby Wilson, NC is an established community on the outskirts of the Triangle and Raleigh can be reached within 35 minutes of this great hunting tract. The Wilson city limits are within 7 minutes away and easily accessible for supplies and other amenities. http://www.wilsonnc.org
