Plenty. Are you interested in living in the Coastal Plain, Piedmont or Mountain Region of NC?

While they do some hunting doing the appropriate seasons here in Greene County (coastal plain area) I think there might be more hunting in the mountains than down here. My father use to hunt. And bring home squirrels to eat. I have no idea how many I ate before he told me when I was about 10 what they were but I can tell you how many I ate afterwards. None.
I just am not into this eating off the land and game food. Now they have a lot of turkey houses down here and if they died of certain things, they are still edible and I have eaten that. But I didn't pluck it. My first MIL did that. I remember once my first inlaws had chickens. The rooster flew up and scratched up Joey, one of the grandchildren when he was about 4 or so. My MIL ran that chicken down until he caught him and my MIL made chicken salad out of him. I am funny about things like that. I probably couldn't eat lobster either. I know they boil them alive and the thoughts of picking out my still alive supper is a little more than I can handle. So I didn't eat the children. Bad rooster or not, I had seen him running all over that yard for the better part of a year. I guess I sound like Madeline and the chicken they got alive and cooked that Madeline had named Fred.
But there are plenty of places that you will be able to find that should fulfill your dreams. Narrow down the section of the state that you are the most interested in and I am sure these people and myself can come up with some choices for you to take a look at. Welcome to North Carolina.

Pittsboro is a cute little town...lots of country around it but a quaint little downtown core with historic buildings, shops, etc.

Default Trucking

Charlotte and the Greensboro area have the most trucking jobs in the state.
