Well, I finally booked a hunt at the trophy managed area owned by Lily Pond Creek in NC.

The Verona Plantation is owned by the same folks as Lily Pond Creek. It is 5 or 6,000 acres they take 8 guys at a time with an 8-point/14" spread minimum on bucks and unlimited does.

Wasn't cheap.

I'll let you all know in November how it was.

Wytetail,
I've heard good things about Lily Pond.. A friend of mine goes there and harvested a very nice buck 2 years ago. Good Luck and let us know how you make out.....

Weather was hot, not a lot of movement. Three guys in camp with me all shot very nice bucks.

We were hunting Verona - the guys at Lily Pond did much better on small bucks. Verona has antler restrictions. Food was good, accommodations at Verona a little rough but Lily pond seemed nicer.

Thanks. We wanted to book Verona but couldn't get in the week we were committed to. Good to hear they got good shooting on Lily pond, it'll be fine with me, I'm not that picky.

Any other good recommendations for an outfitter/lodge in NC or SC? My brothers and I are looking to do a trip for the first time and would like to here the good and bad from others. Thanks

IMO, you can't beat Deerfield Plantation in St. George SC for a southern hunt, in fact I'm leaving tomorrow morning to meet up with Bumblehick to drive down for our annual October hunt there next week.

I've hunted Deerfield almost every year since 1995, the accommodations are great, food is great, staff is great and the hunting can be very good. I've killed 23 bucks including about a half dozen very good ones, 18 does, 3 big hogs and 2 bobcats there over the years. Look up my posts and you'll find numerous posts about my DF hunts with lots of pictures.

It's getting a bit pricey lately but IMO you get what you pay for.
