North Carolina's prime hunting and fishing have been topics for writers since colonial times. As part of WILDLIFE IN NORTH CAROLINA magazine's fiftieth anniversary celebration, the magazine includes a sampling of some of hunting and fishing stories. The excerpts, written by the five authors, all take place in North Carolina, and all appeared in print between 1894 and 1947. Some authors were famous in their day, while others were not.
