I have acquired a nice place for a hunter, it is in a very rural area of North Carolina’s Eastern regions. In fact it is a bit North of the Great Dismal Swamp. There are all sorts of wild game in the area. Some of the locals have talked about seeing Red Wolves, which are in fact not found anywhere else in world I think. They apparently help the balance of game birds. I have been moving in, fixing it up and adding things like satellite TV and high speed satellite internet. My big thing is hunting turkey and quail, which are really abundant in this area. The local wildlife people tell me that the comeback of the wolves made a huge difference for the game bird population. You would not guess it from thinking about it, but in fact if you have no predators for raccoons and opossums they eat all of the bird eggs. Once you brought back the wolves they preyed on the coons and possums, which keeps them in check. Fewer raccoons means more turkeys.
Of course I see coyotes, which seem to be responsible for this same effect and I am guessing that they do not really hang around if you have red wolves. Of course the local farmers do not want the wolves around, but I think they are fine for what I am interested in. It is a really wild place in this area and I am here to hunt and also to take some photos. I only take a few animals, but I have a set of nice cameras and lens. That is what I really like and I am hoping to get some pictures of black bears and perhaps even catch sight of the wolves in this area. It might take some patience.
