844 acres of La Bear. All the goodness of the 564 acre offering and then some. It Doesn’t Get Any Better in eastern North Carolina! First class waterfowl hunting, huge black bears, endless whitetail deer, wild quail, turkeys everywhere and resident wild hogs. Nothing like it available anywhere. Includes the “stone house” lodge, multiple duck impoundments and the most extensive interior access network I have ever seen.
We are proud to offer two different acreage packages for the storied La Bear Farm. The first is a 564 acre scenario and the second is an 844 acre scenario which includes the first. La Bear is located in Hyde County North Carolina 3.7 miles west of Fairfield on the northwest corner of Lake Mattamuskeet where multiplied thousands of ducks, geese and swans spend their winters. Both of the offerings include the “Stone House” lodge and 2 acres on Piney Woods Road. The farm is directly behind the lodge. The lodge is a ranch style stone clad brick home with a spacious covered parking area, covered patio outdoor gathering area, two large great rooms, kitchen, master bedroom, two smaller bedrooms and a large bunk room, three full baths and a utility area. If you already have lodging in the area, the “Stone House” can be removed from the offering. I have fallen in love with the farm. Partly because the landowner’s passion for this property is infectious. Once on the property you will get a clear understanding of the owner’s care and dedication to making sure the farm produces and holds the incredible amount of wildlife that it is known for.
The 564 acre scenario includes 121 acres of open land that is currently in cultivation and another 25 + acres that is being brought back into production after a couple years of laying fallow. The remainder of this section contains a wide diversity of habitat from broom straw to wax myrtles to mature pine plantations. Included in this section is a 44 acre duck hole known to the landowner and club members as the “Wildlife Impoundment”. Many a duck made his last splash in this infamous hole. Here’s the kicker, and what I believe sets this place apart from virtually every other property on the East Coast is the fact that with all of that agriculture and with all of the diversity of wooded habitat the entire 564 acres can be flooded. That’s special!
The 844 acre scenario includes all the goodness of the first scenario plus much more. Of the 280 additional acres being offered in this scenario, 111 acres are in cultivation. 65 acres of that is another highly productive duck impoundment. The remaining acreage is a mix of pine plantation and wax myrtles. I couldn’t begin to add up the miles of roads and paths and trails that are currently being maintained by the landowner. It is mind-boggling to see it once you get on the property. By far the best interior access of any property I have ever seen or been on, anywhere!
Last but certainly not least, the animals. First class waterfowl hunting, huge black bears, endless whitetail deer, wild quail, turkeys everywhere and resident wild hogs. The location is certainly a huge factor in the waterfowl hunting success on La Bear. A duck barely has to flap his wings to get from the northwest corner of the lake, which holds thousands of wintering waterfowl, to the established impoundments on the farm. Plenty of photo and video footage will be available in the months to come. It’s untold how many black bears actually live on this farm. Location is a huge key here again in maintaining a steady supply of bears. The farm is bordered on the north and to the west by thousands of acres of undeveloped, inaccessible, Hyde County bear factory land. One of the largest black bears ever killed in the state, heck, in the world for that matter, was killed on the adjacent farm a few years ago. 783 pounds! La Bear is as good a place as there is to kill a record book bear. The deer and the turkeys at times seem to be around every corner. Pretty silly really. If interested, killing a hog will not be a problem either.
