TENNESSEE AND NORTH CAROLINA
TENNESSEE AND NORTH CAROLINA—What are the game furbearing animals of Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina?
A very few deer, some bears, wild cats, foxes and other, game. I sup pose you have in mind the Great Smoky Mountains. You will find them an ideal place for camping and the streams are full of trout on the N. C. side. I can’t say much about the Tennessee side as I didn’t spend much time over there, but I suppose it is the same. If you are hunting a trapping ground there are better ones to be found elsewhere. I got off at Bryson City and went up into the mountains about ten miles.
I spent some time in the Great Smoky Mountains of the western part of North Carolina, last winter. It is not a very good place for trapping. Bears and coon are fairly plentiful and there are a few deer there; mink, skunks and muskrats are not as plentiful as in some other places that I have trapped. A few otters are found back in the wilds, but no beavers.
