The NCWRC wants to hear your opinion

What do you think about hunting on Sundays in North Carolina? A prohibition on Sunday hunting had been in place since 1868 until a few years ago. That’s when the Outdoor Heritage Enhanced Act was signed into law on July 25, 2017. That act granted the NCWRC the authority to issue new Sunday hunting laws on the state’s game lands.

Under that act, it’s still illegal to hunt on Sunday with firearms between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., to hunt deer with the use of dogs, and to hunt within 500 yards of a place of worship.

Since the act was passed, the NCWRC has been gathering public input to help the agency understand the public’s desires about Sunday hunting on the state’s game lands. And they are asking for potential hunters to take a survey which will aid them in forming new laws for hunting on Sundays. Click here to take the survey.

The survey is available through Feb. 2. The NCWRC is also holding public forums to further discuss Sunday hunting. The schedule for these forums is listed below:
