Hog Huntin, Southern Style…


Hog and Deer hunting in North Carolina with T&M Hunting Properties, LLC

 Just north of the Atlantic Ocean and south of nearly everything else in North America, clients of the Sherwood brothers are taking big Carolina hogs and exceptional southern whitetail bucks.  I can attest to their success, first hand.  Along with my brother Mike Gaskins of Chillicothe, Illinois, I was there in October 2010 and we had a blast chasing “sum big ol hogs.” 

Matt Sherwood is the son of one of my oldest friends, so I have known him for many years.  To say Matt lives to hunt and fish is as cliché as saying “How are you?” as a greeting.  Most people prioritize their lives in such a manner that hunting falls somewhere down their list, well below say, sleeping, eating, mowing the grass and other normal requirements of life.  For Matt, his wife and kids are on the top of the list and the only additional entries are hunting and fishing, in that order.  But, while many people take their passions to the extreme, few have mastered them so successfully.  Matt is a consummate hunter and fisherman.

Huge North Carolia Catfish

Matt and His Boys with Big Catfish

Matt Sherwood is the son of one of my oldest friends.  Accompanied by his wife Shannon and their boys, Taylor and Logan, Matt moved to Shannon’s home state of North Carolina.  An avid outdoorsman, he immediately set about finding places to hunt for deer and turkeys and the best places to wet a fishing line.  As you can see by the above photographs, he has definitely found some huge catfish!  They have also caught some really large Gar.  When I was a kid we caught a ton of these in the Illinois River.  We called them “Alligator-Gar” because of their long narrow teeth filled jaws.

I’ll give you the FAQ’s, the how and where, after I next speak to Matt.  Until then, I wanted to make these photos available for folks to enjoy.

Good Fishing Matt!  Maybe you can fill in the where and how in the comments section.

I am looking forward to posting some turkey and whitetail deer photos from North Carolina in the future.
