The publication is known for its excellent photos, fine writing and vivid, detailed drawings and paintings of wildlife ranging from blue birds to blue marlin.

Jim Wilson is editor of Wildlife in N.C., following in a job once held by Wildlife Resources Commission pioneers Rod Amundsen and Duane Raver.
