Please note that on several websites it says that I am against hunting. I am not a hunter but by no means am I against Hunters. I do understand that first of all most hunters are ethical and believe in fair chase in a natural environment. I have done enough research about NCWRC and the management of our wildlife in NC to know that it is the hunters that are paying for so very much to protect our wildlife. Thank you NC’s HUNTERS.
I, nor any person/volunteers with RiseNC.org, can promote fund-raising for any cause at this time as RiseNC.org is not an established non-profit organization. RiseNC is a group of volunteers who are trying to make changes for the better management of wildlife in NC. I fear at this time our campaign may be hindered if we attach ourselves with any group, individual, or organization collecting monies.
