RALEIGH, N.C. (Sept. 23, 2015) — Spaces still remain for introductory deer hunting seminars offered by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the Quality Deer Management Association across the state in September.
The free seminars, which will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., are designed for new and experienced hunters. Topics will include deer biology, hunting methods, equipment and clothing, as well as field care of deer, processing and easy-to-follow recipes.
A question-and-answer session, along with a brief overview of hunter recruitment, retention and re-activation initiatives, will conclude each seminar.
Remaining dates and locations are:
“Prior to 2015, the Wildlife Commission held this series of hunting seminars only at our education centers,” said Walter “Deet” James, the Commission’s hunting heritage biologist. “Because they were such a huge success and filled up almost immediately, we wanted to offer them in other parts of the state to bring awareness of conservation and wildlife-associated recreation to a greater proportion of North Carolinians and also to help us better understand barriers to participation.”
Online pre-registration for the deer hunting seminars is required. Contact James at 919-707-0059 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Visit the hunting page and click on the “What to Hunt” link for information about deer and deer hunting in North Carolina.
