RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 19, 2013) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has promoted Tim Sisk to captain for District 9, where he will manage and supervise enforcement operations for hunting, fishing and boating, and coordinate boating safety and hunter education programs.

Capt. Sisk will supervise 23 wildlife officers and a hunter education specialist in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Swain, Macon, Jackson, Haywood, Transylvania, Madison, Buncombe and Henderson counties. A 26-year veteran with the Wildlife Commission, he was previously a lieutenant in the district. His predecessor, Greg Daniels, recently retired.

“This region has a rich heritage of hunting and fishing, boating and wildlife watching,” said Sisk. “We have numerous game lands, state and national forests and parks, rivers and lakes that are world-renowned for outdoor recreation. I look forward to my new position and continuing role in serving conservation and public safety in these beautiful mountains.”

Sisk holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from UNC- Charlotte and is a 1987 graduate of the Wildlife Basic Law Enforcement Training School.

“Capt. Sisk knows quite well the western corner of this state and its people,” said Col. Dale Caveny, chief of the Commission’s Division of Law Enforcement. “He has my full confidence that he will carry on this agency’s mission in an area that is as biologically diverse as it is culturally.”
