s-David Holton has ' called a meet
ihg of the Chowan County Wildlife
Club to be held tonight (Thursday)
at 6 o'clock in the Court House.
Holton, working 'through Leon
Thomas, district game protector su
pervisor, has interested the N. C Re
source Commission in the establish
ment of s game refuge in Chowan and
Perquimans counties. The State has
already sent a man to make a pre
liminary hearing, which was found
favorable. The refuge now depends
largely upon the interest shown by
landowners. -... . .- : . .
The area contemplated for restock
ing is the pocca8in extending from the
Brayhall section to Yeopim Station in
Perquimans. County, and includes be
tween 12 and IS thousand acres suit
able for the purpose. At 'present there
is no big game at all in the area, but
is Ideal for deer. Deer would he
stocked by the State' so . that the
opinion is advanced that it could. be
come one of the best' deer hunting
areas in the State. ..The State would
not only restock the game refuge, but
would protect and. supervise it for a
few years.
It is estimated that a herd of from
50 to .200 deer would be stocked to
start with. " ' "
' .The game refuge is a major project
of the Owwan County Wildlife Club,
and at the meeting another very im
portant " project of vital interest of
this section will be discussed. For that
reason, Mr. Holton hopes all members
of the club, as well as non-members
will attend. -. ' .
