43.7 Acres of Hunting Land For Sale in Gates County NC! Located directly off HWY 37 just outside of Gatesville, NC this beautiful hunting tract is full of opportunity to hunt a variety of wildlife. The property is heavily wooded and has a great road system running through it from HWY 37 all the way to Bennetts Creek on the north side. This road system is not only a convenience for traveling through the property, but would do well with ladder or tripod stands, allowing for a great line of sight shot on deer crossing in those curves in the road we know they use for cover.

The avid bow hunter can ease into his favorite hang-on stand to catch that mature buck slipping the edge of the dark swamps between the acorn producing hardwoods and his bedding area. Turkeys are abundant on this property and the opportunity to catch a strutting Tom on the green grass covered road, or coming off the roost on the creek bottom is wide open to those who enjoy the thrill of chasing those smart Eastern swamp birds.

Black Bears are known to roam the area, using Bennetts Creek as a travel corridor, and a variety of water fowl can be harvested from the creek or in the flooded timber holes, as well. This property is perfect for the die hard duck hunter who is at home when hunting the gray timber swamps of the south and a fair amount of Wood Ducks were bumped off the creek upon the initial viewing of this great offering.

The Chowan Swamp Game Lands can be accessed to the south of this property by boat or vehicle, also giving access to the Chowan River. This is a great way to own your own private hunting paradise within minutes of some of the best public hunting acreage Eastern NC has to offer. http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/Hunting/Game-Land-Maps/Coastal/Chowan-Swamp.pdf

Chowan Game Land is 30 acres of Tidal Swamp Forest located on Pembroke Creek outside of Edenton, NC. Management consists only of land protection and boundary posting. Chowan Swamp Game Land totals 31,372 acres in Bertie, Gates, and Hertford counties.

The Chowan River proper originates at the North Carolina-Virginia border where the Blackwater and Nottoway rivers meet. Narrow and lively at its source, the 50-mile-long Chowan flows southeast past such small towns as Winton and Colerain before broadening to nearly two miles wide where it meets the Albemarle Sound near Edenton. Along with the Roanoke River, it supplies most of the fresh water to the sound, which is part of the second-largest estuary system in the United States (the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuary).
