My husband and I are looking for a nice quiet town an hour or two from ocean and close to state land to hunt in North Carolina. We are moving from upstate New York. and looking for a fixer upper or a foreclosure house and at least an acre of land for under 50k. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You might look around Maple Hill, Beulaville, or Richlands. I can't guarantee there is anything currently available in your price range, however there are two large state gameland nearby.

Another area to look at is the Neuse River State Gamelands near New Bern. Or you could just get a list of all the coastal gamelands here: N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission > Hunting > Where to Hunt > Public Places > Coastal Game Land Maps

I don't have detailed knowledge of it, but Bertie County is another prospect. It is one of the poorest ares of the state and should have many fixer-uppers.

I am stunned. I thought no hope at that price. Unless that house in Bayboro is on a nuc dump, you should jump on that.

Try Clinton/Salemburg/Roseboro in Sampson Co, NC. Lots of hunters, and very Southern. (Not burn a cross in your yard Southern, but not used to seeing Northerners around, for sure.) Pretty diverse racially, especially Clinton which has large Hispanic and African American populations. Folks can be friendly, and some unfriendly. Cheap property, lots of fixers uppers. Roseboro is a bit depressed feeling, Clinton is the "city" of the three, so I would lean towards Salemburg.
