Our hunting preserve in Tarboro, Edgecombe County, NC with over 5000 woodland acres along the Swift Creek, Fishing Creek, Deep Creek, and Tar River is managed for Ducks, Deer, Turkey, Dove, and Upland Game Birds including, Quail, Pheasant and Chukar.

We have Experienced Hunting Guides that can assist you with all your hunting needs. Kennels are on site if you have your own dogs or trained hunting dogs can be provided.
Whitetail Deer: As part of our deer management program here at Huckleberry Ridge, we plant and maintain various forages and pasture crops year round, including corn, chicory, rape, soybean, peanuts, clover, sweet potatoes, sugar beets, lespedeza, and a mix of small grains to attract the native whitetail deer to our game preserve and provide the nutrients necessary to develop massive antlers. These food sources are amongst over 5000 acres of mixed oak woods (for acorns), pastures and bottomland along the Tar River, Deep Creek, Swift Creek, and Fishing Creek that make up our hunting preserve and offer the perfect habitat for Whitetail Deer to breed and multiply.
Hunting Stands: Huckleberry Ridge has a total of 56 deer hunting stands including 42 box stands (that will accommodate two hunters), 10 ladder stands, and 6 tree stands.
Eastern Wild Turkey: The Sawtooth, White and Overcup Oak trees that make up our hardwood bottomland along the banks of the Tar River, Fishing Creek, Swift Creek, and Deep Creek here in Edgecombe county, North Carolina, provide a superior habitat for Wild Turkey, offering a natural food source and safe roosting sites. We also maintain a variety of food plots, including chufa, a spring mix of small grains along with numerous clover ridges for bugging and strutting areas to attract and maintain a Heavy Wild Turkey Population.
