COLUMBIA, N.C. – Tyrrell County abounds in hunting opportunities on public lands, but understanding the differences between state and federal properties is important for a successful hunt.
To help familiarize hunters with the distinctions between public properties, the N.C. Coastal Reserve, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will hold a hunter information workshop at 7 p.m. Sept. 27 at Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge’s Walter B. Jones Sr. Center for the Sounds, 205 South Ludington Dr., Columbia.
This workshop presents an opportunity for hunters to interact with public land managers and enforcement staff. It will include an orientation to the various public lands that are open to hunting, a review of different public land rules, changes since the last hunting season, and opportunities to ask questions of enforcement staff.
This workshop is free and open to the public.
For more information, contact Woody Webster, site manager of the Emily and Richardson Preyer Buckridge Coastal Reserve, at 252-796-3709.
