The Buncombe unit regulates hunting opportunities for deer in North Carolina and covers 654 square miles. Public lands comprise 104 square miles (16%) of the total land covered by this game management unit. The greater region is best serviced by Downtown Asheville, Black Mountain, and Skyland. The elevation of the region ranges from a low of 1,000 feet to a high of 6,600 feet above sea level. Wildfires have burned nearly 960 acres here in the last two years, providing opportunities for new vegetation and attracting a variety of wildlife. This unit is a gateway to these forested areas: Pisgah National Forest.
