Troutman, NC Deer Hunting
321-307 Autumn Leaf Rd
Troutman, NC 28166

Come hunt my private land in Troutman, NC. Plenty of Bucks & does...just plenty of deer. Just 10 minutes off Hwy 77 (exit 42), by the Lake Norman State Park, which borders my property on two sides. Deer hunting can be very expensive. By the time you lease the hunting land, put out food plots or corn (I've already spent $300 on corn this year), purchase tree stands, ground blinds, ammo, guns, stays in hotels while your traveling and paying for road food, it's easy to spend thousands of dollars and invest many days of time with NO GUARANTEE OF A KILL. The daily fee to hunt my land is $50 (which is applied to your harvest fee). For $350 you can harvest the doe of your choice or up to a 4-point buck, providing of course, you get a shot. For $500 you can harvest a buck 6 points and up. Working in downtown Charlotte and need a great Christmas gift for a friend? Work until 2pm and be in the woods by 3pm when the deer are moving. If you hunt with a bow (I've already taken 2 this year), there is no harvest guarantee but fee applies. No need for 4-wheelers and after bagging your deer, we will have it on ice within the hour. If you think about it, you get to have some fun outdoors time and great memories on the cheap. You will yield usually 30 - 50 lbs of meat per deer depending on size (35 lbs x $12/lb = $420), so while you are paying a few bucks to hunt, you are stocking up your freezer with a more healthy, low-fat meat! Anyone hunting will first sign a release of liability and must have a NC hunting license (instate it's cheap at Walmart). Each hunter will put down a deposit of $500 cash from which your $50 daily hunting fee will be deducted. If you hunt one day and do not take a deer, you will be refunded $450. If you hunt one day and take a doe, your daily hunting fee is applied to your harvest amount so you would owe $350 and you would be refunded $150. If you hunt 3 days ($150 in hunting fees) and you harvest a doe, again your hunting fees are applied to your harvest fee. You would pay a total of $350 and would be refunded $150.
