RALEIGH – The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will host four public input meetings in March to discuss deer hunting with the aid of dogs, associated conflicts and potential solutions. 

All meetings begin at 7 p.m. Locations and dates are:

  • Wednesday, March 18

South Granville High School

701 North Crescent Dr., Creedmoor, NC

“Hunting deer with the aid of dogs is a deeply rooted and long-standing tradition in North Carolina,” said Gordon Myers, the Commission’s executive director. “However, in a rapidly changing state, conflicts among user groups and with landowners do occur. These meetings will provide a forum to discuss those conflicts and potential solutions.”
