Dock Boone is the owner of the business as well as one of the guides so you can be sure they are going to give you your money’s worth.” We aren’t looking for the “one hits” so to speak. A lot of guide services have to book new people every year because they aren’t getting repeat business. That’s not what we are about. Our goal is to get the guys back year after year. And we do. We have a very high percentage of repeat hunters every year, better than eighty percent. We work hard to give our hunters quality time. Excellent country cooking, a great hunting experience, and just a good time overall. When you hunt with us it’s your camp and we are working for you. We want you back next year.”
Our guides have extensive animal knowledge, woodsmanship, and experience. Their decisions should be respected. They are constantly scouting daily to give you the best opportunity to harvest your trophy. They will provide field transportation to and from your stand and care for your trophy when it is down. Professionally performed skinning and capping of your deer is provided. For those who prefer to do it themselves, equipment and help is available.
History of Northampton County
Northampton county is 504 square miles and was formed in 1741, Among the earliest in the state to be settled. The county received its name from George, Earl of Northampton. He was a British nobleman and the brother of the Earl of Wilmington. By 1786, the population had increased to 8,220. Northampton is the largest peanut production county in the nation. In earlier years main crops were also cotton, soybeans, alfalfa, potatoes, and watermelons. During the depression era, timber sales sustained most local farmers. While today the predominant crops are soybean and cotton, the Roanoke river continues to provide rich nutrients to the soils and has one of the largest spawning migrations of striped bass each spring.
