NCTC Deer Hunt
The National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) has concluded its 2016 managed deer hunting program. Hunting was conducted using both archery and shotguns with single slugs to help keep the deer population in balance with available habitat. Thirty deer were taken by hunters, which matches the long-term average. In order to protect wildlife from accidental poisoning, during that hunt only non-toxic lead-free ammunition was used, as it has been since 2013. Further information is available on the attached Harvest Summary.
NCTC is grateful to the hunters who have assisted us with this managed deer hunt. It is anticipated that the managed deer hunt will be continued in the autumn of 2017. Interested hunters should check this website in late July for information and an on-line application, which will probably be due near the end of August.
