The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, the state’s agency mandated to conserve and sustain the state’s fish and wildlife resources, will host two family-friendly events that Saturday highlighting the region’s extraordinary hunting and fishing heritage. The John Lentz Hunter Education Complex will host the official National Hunting and Fishing Day event from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., and the John E.
