NCTC Deer Hunt
The National Conservation Training Center has concluded its 2012 deer hunting program. A combination of archery, shotgun and muzzle-loading rifle hunting was used to help keep the deer population in balance with available habitat. Thirty deer were taken by hunters, which is slightly under the thirty-one that were taken last year and just over the long-term average of twenty-nine. NCTC is grateful to the hunters who have assisted us with this managed deer hunt.
It is anticipated that hunting will be continued in the Fall of 2013. During that hunt only lead free ammunition is to be used. Interested hunters should check this website in late July for information and an application to hunt, which will probably be due in late August.
