On 4/19/17, there is another group meeting in addition to the NC General Assembly. A few miles away, the NC Wildlife Resources Commission will hold committee meetings all day, with the full Commission meeting on Thursday, 4/20/17. Anyone in town who would like to drop by, visit at 10:15 am to hear an explanation to the Big Game Committee of how North Carolina’s bear hunters responded to the proposed “alignment” of bear hunting seasons to biological “zones” in the “Coastal Bear Management Unit”. It should be interesting. Further, they intend to follow the 2016 Deer Hunter Survey with May 2017 Deer Forums. More surveys, and more decisions. Pay attention, bear & deer hunters!
