Hunting

Waterfowl hunting has been a tradition on the Outer Banks for hundreds of years. Here is a 1960s photo of an Ocracoke hunter. Can any of our readers identify this man?


















For information about waterfowl hunting in the 2015-2016 season, click here: http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/Regs/Documents/Waterfowl-Late-Seasons.pdf.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is about islanders who worked on the water, and lost their lives at sea. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news012116.htm.

    2. How is Blanche doing, is she still in the hospital? Have been thinking about her, certainly hope she is coming along fine.

    3. I stopped to visit with Blanche last week in the nursing home. She is frail, but carried on a pleasant conversation with me for about 20 minutes.

    5. The last time I visited Blanche she showed me the large stack of cards she had received. She is also enjoying visits by family & friends. She is quite frail, but remarkable. She is 96 years old.

      Are family/friends still bringing Blanche mail from her post office box? Or might a nursing home address be better?

    8. I believe Blanche has just been moved to another facility, but I don't know the address, so for now her Ocracoke PO Box is probably the best option.
