Hunting at Occoneechee Hunting Lodge Welcome to Occoneechee lodge. We're the oldest lodge in the area, offering guided hunts since 1989. We are unique in several ways and offer the most liberal bag limit, managed and unmanaged areas, and 3 full day or 6 full days of hunting.
When I started quality deer management in the Occoneechee Neck over 20 years ago it was a new concept. Now that it has caught on we have thousands of acres under management along the Roanoke River. With our great genetics program and prime habitat we are seeing more and more big bucks. Come and enjoy a quality hunt and some great southern hospitality.
Occoneechee Lodge is located in the heart of the peanut belt of Northeastern North Carolina. Our hunting area consists of 8,000 acres of family owned land in Northampton County on the historical Roanoke River. Northampton has been the state leader in deer kills reported for the last several years. Directly across the river is Halifax County, the #2 deer kill county in the state.
We offer one of the longest seasons in the country, with our bow & arrow season beginning in early September, blackpowder in early October, and rifle season from mid-October to January 1. Our bag limit is very liberal with six deer per season and two deer per day limits. This limit consists of 2 does and 4 bucks.
Guided Hunts: On a guided hunt, our guest are taken to their stands before daylight by an experienced guide and picked up around 10:00AM. After a lunch, the hunters will be taken back to their stands until dark. Handling the kill is included in a guided hunt. The deer will be dressed and quartered. Packaging and shipping is the hunter's responsibility. We have a cooler on the premises.
Trophy Area: Hunters have the option of hunting our 5,000 acre trophy management which consists of three miles of river bottom, crop fields, swamp, and hardwood ridges along the Roanoke River. In this area bucks with a minimum 15 inch outside spread or mature does may be harvested.
Turkey Hunts: Northampton County's Roanoke River bottom is home to the highest concentration of Wild Turkeys in North Carolina. Our four week season begins the second week in April. We offer guided and semi-guided hunts.
Occoneechee Lodge has experience in turkey hunting dating back to the early 1960's. We will hunt together in pursuit of the sub-species in various other states from March through May.
