Deer reduction program offered

Students from N.C. State University are working this summer to reduce crop loss caused by deer.

If farm income is being lost because of deer damage and you would like to receive additional income earned through hunting opportunities, then this program may be for you. Enrollment of farmland is taking place now.
Landowners, farmers leasing land and hunting clubs who hunt on farmland may participate, receiving $2/acre for hosting a 15-day hunt in 2013 and a hunt kit for long-term deer management and income opportunity. 

For more about how to sign up, call your Cooperative Extension Service Office and ask about Farmers Manage Deer in your county, or call Guy and Judy Gardner at 919-552-9449.

The project is made possible by the N.C. Wildlife Federation, N.C. Tobacco Trust Fund Commission, N.C. Soybean Producers Association, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Hunters for the Hungry and the Quality Deer Management Association.
