I've heard that they may pass a law allowing night hunting with the aid of red flood lights to combat the rampant spread of these animals. In Caswell County, we've been told that we can in fact do this, on our club (private land), as long as we notify the local warden before conducting the hunt as to what we're doing so they won't waste their time checking out the shots fired at night calls.
According to one warden I talked to, the WRC has trapped about 275 on the R. Wayne Bailey Gamelands because of habitat & food plot distruction. Hopefully the WRC will let us carry appropriate arms on gamelands to hunt these possibly dangerous things when the big game season is closed.
