I did check it out PT. Its part of Johnston Community College I bet he can get in on a pig hunt ASAP! I'd call em see what the chances are. Prices seem fair, since they are maintaining bait piles, cleaning station, stands, and will assist you in getting your harvest out. Sounds like a pretty good deal.
I do know that area pretty well, Lots of inexpensive lodging, campgrounds, and restaurants close to i95 if you're looking to do it economically. Big Outlet Mall (lots to do for wifey while you're hunting) and not a bad gun shop/hunting store nearby. Forty minutes or so from Raleigh, 1.5 hrs from the beach. Look up Springhill Outfitters, they are on exit 101, Kenly NC (I think). That's the shop's name maybe they can assist you further in alternate places besides Howell Woods and in any lull time that you are able to hunt there.
