COLUMN: Exploring the Sandhills Game Lands

In the northern parts of Richmond and Scotland counties lies more than 60,000 acres of the Sandhills Game Land. This land was part of a bigger purchase of land by the federal government in the early part of the 20th century. Over a half million acres of sandy poor land in five counties were and still are used to  train our armed forces. Over time, the part known as Sandhills Game Management Land has been managed by state agencies like the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, Fish Hatchery and Forest Service.
