What do you think about allowing migratory bird hunting on Sunday?

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is seeking your opinion on migratory bird hunting on Sunday. Currently Sunday hunting for migratory birds, including waterfowl, is prohibited. The Commission urges you to attend a public meeting, see listing below, and share your opinion.

The Commission has hired an independent, non-biased research firm, Responsive Management, to conduct a statewide study on attitudes toward hunting migratory birds on Sunday and develop a report outlining its social and economic impacts. The North Carolina General Assembly requires that the Commission complete a research study on the biological, economic, and social impacts of hunting birds on Sunday to the General Assembly no later than March 1, 2018.

Participate in the study by attending one of the four scheduled public meetings. Each meeting will be held from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the following locations:
