Currently viewing results 1 - 1
Core Sound was a sportsman's paradise for waterfowl shooting during the 19th- and early 20th-centuries. Wealthy hunters came from New York, New Jersey, and other northeastern states to shoot waterfowl and enjoy the comforts of clubs, including the Pilentary Hunting Club, Carteret Gun and Rod Club, and the Harbor Island Gun Club. Babe Ruth and future president Franklin D. Roosevelt were among the notables who hunted the area. Though the clubs are closed, their legacy of 100 years remains.
