Default Not winni.....Corbin Park New Hampshire

This site is a wealth of information. Anybody heard of Corbin Park In Croydon?
All I got is that itís a 25,000 acre fenced in game preserve consisting of buffalo,European hogs, red stags and antelope.
The buffalo from this park repopulated Yellowstone on the hush hush.
Bill Ruger had something to do with this secretive place.
From what Iíve gathered, not much info out there, is that it is a private hunting club for the wealthy, past and present.
Think it was founded in 1850s
And yes, the hogs are the same kind they have a problem with in Southwest.
Some have escaped over the years a have done damage to nearby farms. A crew comes and fixes the damage done, captures or kills escaped hogs and writes a check for any inconvenience.
Any more info would be great.

They say part of the fence was damaged during a hurricane back in the day...some of the critters escaped.

This article should help. Grew up about 5 miles from the park. A very interesting but PRIVATE place.
