SOUTHERN PINES HUNTING HISTORY
Gary Denson, a veteran outdoorsman co-founder the club in 1993. Gary began with only a few hundred acres on an International Paper Company lease with no members, no camp, no plots. The club currently manages approximately 2000 continuous acres for quality deer and turkey. Gary established the first plows using a lawn mover and garden tiller. Old packing crates served as hunting blinds. The property now has 26 high quality plots with nice shooter houses. Gary spent the first season boon docking in an RV parked on the hunting lease. The club now has a member owned camp house with campsites that include power and water. The camp property has a lighted hanging shed with water and and a large lofted shed. The camp house has cable TV, fireplace dishwasher, and many other comforts of home. The house originally had a fuse box and well water with one bathroom. Today we are on city water, the electricity has been updated with multiple breaker boxes on the property and a second bath added along with updated heating All of this much more as a result of Gary's hard work, dedication and leadership. In deep appreciate to Gary, Southern Pines Hunting Club very proudly dedicates, names and recognizes the hunting camp as the GARY W. DENSON HUNTING CAMP. Thank you Gary!
