The hunting and fishing in North Carolina are some of the best in the country, which is why so many people travel to Halifax County in search of the next best catch. In fact, they often rank number one for both white-tailed deer and wild turkey. But there are plenty of other animals running around as well, such as raccoon, opossum, fox, squirrel, rabbit, pheasant, duck, and beaver, to name a few. There are many guide services, hotels and lodges to make your hunting experience easy to navigate. And with Lake Gaston, Roanoke Rapids Lake and the Roanoke River, in addition to all of the creeks and ponds in the area, the same goes for fishing. You can catch shad, largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, catfish and rockfish. Some people even call the town of Weldon “The Rockfish Capital of the World”. So whether you’re looking for game or to cast a line, Halifax County is where it’s at.
