NC Deer Bill

Posted: April 20, 2015 in Uncategorized

This week, I am participating in TeenPact Leadership where I get to spend the day at the NC legislature presenting a bill I would like to propose, learning how government works and how I can make a difference. “How does this relate to archery?” you might ask.

When I was able to turkey hunt a week before the season started because I was a youth it was exciting. So, that got my creative juices flowing and I thought, “What if there was a youth deer season too?” Below is the bill I will be presenting at the mock legislature on Friday requesting a youth deer season.

Now, all we need is an actual legislator who will grab some lobbyist and make this happen. Anyone out there interested? Stay tuned, next week I’ll be back to sharing more wild turkey hunting adventures.
