    NCBA RECOGNIZES WRC OFFICERS at AWARDS BANQUET

    The North Carolina Bowhunters Association (NCBA) honored employees of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission at their Annual Banquet in the Kerr-Scott Building at the Dixie Deer Classic in Raleigh on March 2, 2013.

    Two officers with the NCWRC were recognized for outstanding service to sportsmen, citizens and to the wildlife resources of the state of North Carolina.

    NCWRC Wildlife Enforcement Officer Peter Herron from District 6 was honored as the 'NCBA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.' Mickey Strader, NCBA Youth Ed Co-Chair, presented the award to Officer Herron. In addition to performing his daily enforcement duties, Officer Herron is actively involved in Youth Education activities teaching future hunters about the use of hunting, and especially bowhunting, through the NASP program in schools.

    Dennis McClure (Right), presents the 'NCBA Biologist of the Year Award' to District 3 Biologist, Greg Batts. Batts attended numerous meetings with residents of communities and town councils to offer information and advice about the benefits of utilizing bowhunting and other viable options as useful and effective tools to help manage and control the whitetail deer population in their communities.

    We extend our thanks and gratitude to these men and to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission for their efforts to protect our wildlife resources.

    Andy N. Smith, President / NCBA
