Hello there. That sure is a nice pic you have. I actually lived in J-actionville(I always thought that name wasn't very fitting..lol) for about 3 years in the Piney Green area. No I'm not military. I used to play guitar in a few of the local bars and attended Coastal Community College for music education. Unfortunately I didn't pick up hunting until Oct 2008 so I don't have any hunting buddies that I could refer you to.
I would say that probably the best place to start looking around for a hunting site would be in the Richlands area. It is heavily wooded and there are plenty of whitetail and black bear out there for ya.
If you inquiry had been about a fishing partner....I could have helped you out quite a bit.
I read on the site not to long ago that a lot of people wouldn't mind if you hunt their land if you ask, can prove that you are a safe hunter, and offer them something in return(ie. a little help around the farm for a weekend or something like that). I also read that you could have better results if you asked before the season in plain street clothes. I am sorry that I am no help finding you a partner, but maybe this will help you find a place to hunt.
My grandmother who lived in Swansboro passed away May 20 2008. She always had a special place in her heart for marines as do I. I hope you have good luck in finding that hunting partner and also that your husband finds his way home safely.
