COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Members of the Columbus County Tourism Bureau are hoping to attract visitors by offering "guide hunting."

They want to attract people living in metropolitan areas who like hunting, but don't have the land to do so, and provide them with a place to stay and a hunting guide. 

Members of the tourism bureau, land owners, and hunters have been meeting over the last few months to discuss the project. 

So far, they have seven landowners and six guides who are interested. 

Jennifer Holcomb with the Tourism Bureau says that they're aiming to start guide hunting this hunting season.
