WILMINGTON, N.C. (March 19, 2013) —The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has scheduled a public meeting to hear comments on a proposal to convert approximately 200 acres of Sutton Lake Game Land to archery-only hunting.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. March 27 in theNew Hanover County Cooperative Extension auditorium at 6206 Oleander Drive in Wilmington. 

The proposed change involves a narrow strip of property along the Cape Fear River and does not restrict the use of firearms for waterfowl hunting on the lake.
