Welcome to the forum lookin4myfirst. I'm not very familar with the Guilford County area but I do know that it's not too far from Montgomery County where I hunt. Montgomery County has the Uwharrie National Forest which is over 50,000 acres and has 2.5 deer per square mile.

Take a look at Falls of Neuse/Butner Gamelands in Granville, Durham and Wake Counties.  Especially good for archery.  Black powder gets busy and during rifle season you will have to contend with dog hunting.  I have been successful with the muzzleloader though now I am on some private property.  The Uwharrie tip is a good one too.  Good luck!

What is "moderate season"

Postby SportsRoad » Thu Oct 08, 2009 9:58 am

I am also new to deer hunting in NC.  For some areas it states:
 
"Gun Either-Sex Deer Season: Nov. 14 – 20 and Dec. 26 – Jan. 1 (moderate season)."
 
What exactly does this mean?  Does this mean that you can hunt bucks from Nov. 14 through Jan 1, but only hunt either buck or doe Nov. 14 - 20 and Dec. 26 - Jan 1?  Or does it meant that I can only hunt on the land those specific dates?

It looks like the legal doe harvest days with a firearm for your area are the dates given.  The regulations digest ought to explain it better than it does.  You could also contact a Game Warden in your area who would happily explain the season.
 
Good luck hunting this Fall.

I suggest Caswell or Uwharrie. See details & maps at http://www.ncwildlife.org/Hunting/H_GL_Maps_Piedmont.htm

Also new to NC hunting.  Have hunted in Texas for years but just recently moved to Lake Norman area.  In Texas I hunted on leases (paid $X per gun).  Is NC similar, or do you have to find hunt clubs?  I would like to find a place for my son and I to hunt both deer and turkey that would be no more than 2-3 hours from Charlotte.  Any suggestions on where to start?

David, start with http://www.ncwildlife.org/Hunting/H_GL_ ... edmont.htm

Most hunters are in hunt clubs or on public land.

Uwharrie is close to you and it would be a good place to start. It's 50,000acres.

I have a hunt club but it's near the VA border.

Good Hunting!!
