RALEIGH, N.C. (Nov. 24, 2014) — After conducting a series of public meetings to gather input on developing management plans for game lands across the state, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has posted draft plans for seven game lands on its website for additional public comment.
The Commission is accepting comments through Jan. 16 for the following game lands:
Draft game land management plans may be viewed by visiting www.ncwildlife.org and clicking “Comment on Game Land Plans” in the scrolling icons at the bottom of the homepage. Comments can be e-mailed to email@example.com. Type the name of the game land on which you are commenting in the subject line.
Since July 2013, the Wildlife Commission has conducted 15 public meetings for hunters, trappers, anglers, birders, wildlife watchers and others interested in using game lands to gather input on how 20 Commission-owned game lands should be managed over the next 10 years. Staff is using the public input from the meetings, as well as comments on the draft management plans, to help guide management and user activities on these game lands.
The Commission is developing draft management plans for other game land areas, and will post them online next summer for public review.
