Local hearing on new rules for night hunting of hogs and coyotes scheduled

According to the Wilkes Journal-Patriot Two public hearings on an N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission proposal to allow night hunting of coyotes and hunters year-round while using artificial lights, starting Aug. 1, are scheduled in the region.
