New HogBlog HQ – North Carolina Edition

July 23, 2015

New HogBlog HQWell, I’ve put off posting about this since there’s been a lot of on-and-off, but it looks like it’s all over but the paper signing… Kat and I will soon be closing on about 35 acres of Duplin County farm and woodland.

There’s currently a small, refurbished,1935 vintage cottage at the front of the property, which will work for a temporary residence.  The longer term plan is to build something a little bigger (and newer) back in the woods, away from the road.

There’s a lot of work to be done.

The field is currently in soy beans, and I can’t do anything with it until that is harvested.  Once it’s done, we’ll convert it to pasture for the horses.  In the meantime, the deer and turkeys are loving the crop.  They’re also living it up on the mast (oaks and hickory), as well as the wild, scuppernong (Muscadine) grapes.  I’ve only explored a small portion of the woods, but it’s pretty good looking habitat.

There are wild hogs in Duplin County, but most of them are in the eastern corner of the county. My brother has been hunting a public land tract that’s also got pigs, but we can only hunt there during deer season.  So that’s still an outstanding quest.

So there it is… an update, of sorts, in lieu of over a week without posting anything.  Hope that was worth it.
