Governor Easley is telling hunters that
they should ask Congress to withhold funds for a Navy landing field
in eastern North Carolina.
Easley sent a letter to an audience that included members of
Ducks Unlimited, a hunting and conservation group. Easley says the
proposed landing field in Washington and Beaufort counties is to close to Pocosin National Wildlife Refuge. Easley says we must take a stand and not let this unique refuge be destroyed.
