RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 3, 2016) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the Quality Deer Management Association are offering seven deer hunting seminars across the state in September.
The free seminars, which will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m., are designed for new and experienced hunters. Topics will include deer biology, hunting methods and equipment, as well as field care of deer, processing and easy-to-follow recipes. Pre-registration is required and participants must register online.  
A question-and-answer session, along with a brief overview of hunter R3 (recruitment, retention and re-activation) initiatives, will conclude each seminar.

 “The expanding, statewide seminar series is an effort to increase awareness of wildlife-associated recreational opportunities, help the NCWRC better understand barriers to participation and continually improve the seminar series through attendee feedback,” said Walter “Deet” James, the Commission’s hunting heritage biologist.
This is the second year in a row the Commission has partnered with QDMA on the deer hunting seminars — and is one of many ways the non-profit conservation organization works to ensure the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and hunting heritage.
“Part of QDMA’s mission is to ensure the future of hunting,” said Rick Counts, QDMA regional director. “To reach the hunting public, we participate in educational seminars, conduct field days and hold fundraisers throughout the year.” To learn more about QDMA initiatives and activities, visit qdma.com/events.
