There’s a public meeting on Wednesday (07/29/15) to discuss the temporary ban on target shooting in the Croatan National Forest, in portions of Jones, Craven, and Carteret counties. Jared Brumbaugh has more.
After receiving hundreds of complaints from locals, the U.S. Forest Service banned target shooting in the Croatan for 120 days. The closure took effect July 13th. District Ranger Jim Gumm says concerns about public safety prompted the ban.
