The NCWRC recently announced estuarine waters in several areas have been closed to anchored gill nets because of unacceptably high interactions with sea turtles. These areas were closed on Oct. 16, and will remain closed for a minimum of two weeks, which will give turtles a chance to leave the areas.
The waters in Management Unit A have been closed. Management Unit A includes all of Albemarle, Currituck, Croatan, and Roanoke Sounds and their tributaries. Large-mesh and small-mesh anchored gill nets are all prohibited under this closure.
Several public game lands are being temporarily closed by the NCWRC due to flood waters and unsafe traveling conditions. Eight sites are being closed until further notice.
The NCWRC said they will continue monitoring the roads throughout the week, and will reopen roads as conditions improve.
The National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) is about much more than wild turkeys, and that has never been more evident than it is with their new project, the Palmetto Shooting Complex in Edgefield. The recently-opened complex is open to the public.
The NWTF saw a need in the area for this type of complex, and through funds they raised, along with a partnership with the SCDNR, who receives funds for such projects through sales tax on hunting, fishing, and other outdoor products, they decided to build it.
