RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 4, 2011) – The Cape Fear River Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), in partnership with the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission’s Centennial Campus Center for Wildlife Education, will hold a deer hunting clinic on Aug. 30 from 6-8 p.m. at the center, located at 1751 Varsity Drive, Raleigh.

“This free clinic is primarily designed to help newcomers get started in deer hunting, but experienced hunters may pick up some new tips,” said Kelsey Obernuefemann, a wildlife education specialist with the N.C.

Topics covered in the clinic will include:

  • Tree stand safety
  • Whitetail habits and habitats
  • Scouting and hunting techniques
  • Equipment, archery and firearm choices
  • More safety recommendations and state hunting requirements

Space is limited and pre-registration for the clinic is requested. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
