Sportsmen Success Stories
Thanks for the opportunity to hunt the Point Property. Took a 22lb Tom with 1-1/4″ spurs and 11″ beard on my draw hunt. Turkey hunting was as awesome as anywhere I’ve been blessed to chase them. I will be putting in for these hunts again next year.
My family & I have taken several opportunities to visit various parks & waterways, always thankful for the scenery. The Sportsman access program seemed like a good first step. I have only been part of the sportsman program for 7 months but I have enjoyed it immensely. As an amateur hunter, I have unfortunately not had the opportunity to harvest a deer yet but thanks to the sportsman access program & the Land Trust staff, I look forward to the seasonal challenge & excitement that I know will come with a successful hunt. I hope to get my 11 year old son out to the Two Rivers Preserve soon.
I have been impressed with the way The Land Trust & its partners work with governments, businesses and other groups to accomplish the moral goal of protecting our natural environment. I am proud to be a member. My family & I fully believe in your stated mission “If we expect to enjoy the rural landscapes and natural areas of Central North Carolina in the future, we must act now to conserve them.”
My family & I look forward to doing our part through advocacy, patronage & volunteerism.
Thank you again for all you do!
This fall, I was fortunate to be selected (via lottery) for multiple weeks at the same Low Water Bridge property for deer season. This was a challenging, but very rewarding hunt. I harvested a 5 ½ year old monster 11 point with my muzzleloader, which scored 145 3/8 gross (my biggest deer in my 58 young years). The next week, I harvested another mature, heavy horned 8 point. The Sportsman Access Program is an excellent program which may grant you access to some prime hunting land.
But, most of all, through my experience with The Land Trust, I have gained new friends. I have always heard that great employees make for a great company/agency. Well….. this is why the Land Trust has continued to grow and expand. I have come to respect the folks working for the Land Trust and their passion for its mission is glaringly obvious. Being a lifelong residence of central NC (and an avid outdoorsman) I am thrilled to support the Land Trust’s mission to conserve these large natural areas
