There is an excellent internal all-weather road system providing great access to much of the tract. Craven County has some really good deer hunting but it’s claim to fame in the hunting world came in 1998 when Dolly Parton’s cousin Coy brought his bears dogs down from the hills of Tennessee to Craven County and shot an 880 pound black bear near Vanceboro. It shattered North Carolina’s record by 160 pounds. To date it still stands as the heaviest known black bear ever taken in North America. “Hunters have taken more than a dozen 700-pound black bears in North Carolina, and the Coastal Plain’s rising population of seriously large black bears has turned into an economic windfall.” See the rest of the article from Our State Magazine here…https://www.ourstate.com/black-bears-are-making-a-coastal-comeback/ .
