Extremely common in the Pines, Bob. Look at Audubon Deer Club, Woodbury Antlers, Bordentown Gub Club, Chambersburg, etc.Interesting Guy. They came all the way across the pines from where they live to get a club in the pines.
It is fascinating to me that deer were nearly hunted out of existence by 1900. In 1901 there were only 20 legally shot deer in the entire state! Fish and game prohibited hunting until 1909 and began releasing "imported" deer into the pines hoping their population would increase. As the herds recovered, interest in hunting returned but you had to go to the pines to find your quarry. Seemingly every town sent a group to the "deer woods" or "big woods". Some camped, some stayed with locals, and others bought a small piece of land and built a clubhouse. Interest soared in the 1920s and again following World War II. As Guy confirms, many deeds for such properties can be found at the county clerk.Interesting Guy. They came all the way across the pines from where they live to get a club in the pines.
I think it is time for you to to tell.Browsing around the 3d LIDAR, I thought this terrain was pretty interesting. Had no idea where it was until I switched to a topo map. Not quite the Pines, but it is South Jersey. The 3x vertical exaggeration makes the landscape more dramatic, in reality the creek bed elevation is about 45 feet and the "mountains" are around 115 to 140 feet.
Where is this?

Dont think this is considered the pine barrens, but im sure you guys/gals will get this.
Looks familiar. Is this near a cranberry or blueberry field?
Sorry about that boyd, can see where it's confusion now, My shack post is not near a cranberry field. But it is within a few miles of blueberry fields
