RALEIGH, N.C. (March 29, 2012)  — With the launch of a new mobile website on April 2, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will put a wealth of information and services at the fingertips of on-the-go hunters, anglers, boaters and other outdoors enthusiasts to get them in the field, in the woods or on the water quickly and easily.  

The new site is designed for small screens and touch technology common in smart phones, tablets and other portable devices. Mobile-device users accessing the Commission’s full website will be redirected automatically to the mobile site where they can purchase licenses, report harvests, check regulations, find a nearby wildlife service agent, and view interactive maps of boating access areas, shooting ranges and game lands.

From the mobile site, they also will be able to access other information, such as:   

         
  • A contact list of agency phone numbers and email addresses;
  • A sunrise/sunset table;
  • Size and creel limits for saltwater fishes; and
  • Links to the agency’s latest news and events, as well as its social media sites —Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube and the Conserve & Protect blog.
