RALEIGH, NC (WNCN)—The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will offer two webinars on deer hunting and processing.
Officials said new hunters are encouraged to attend, and the webinars will cover an introduction to deer hunting and treatment steps.
“Both webinars are intended to help novice hunters for the upcoming white-tailed deer season, which opens September 10,” said Walter “Deet” James, hunter engagement coordinator at the Wildlife Commission. “This is a fantastic opportunity for people who may not have access to an existing hunting community of family and friends. Each session will be followed by a Q&A session led by agency staff and volunteers.
The first webinar will cover habits, habitats, essential gear, safety and other essential topics, the officials shared.
The second webinar will cover processing, from field dressing to safe meat handling and more.
Officials said they will also discuss chronic wasting disease detection in North Carolina and what that means with the new regulations.
The webinars will take place on August 9 and 11 from 7 to 8 p.m. To register click here.
