– The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is inviting citizens to provide input on regular waterfowl hunting seasons through an online comment system on the Commission’s website beginning next week.
Regular waterfowl seasons begin in late September and include various seasons for ducks, Canada geese, snow geese, brant and tundra swans.
Beginning next week, citizens can comment on proposed dates for the seasons, by going to www.ncwildlife.org
and clicking on “Regular Waterfowl Season Comments.” Public comments will be accepted until Aug. 16.
The Commission’s website, www.ncwildlife.org,
will also provide the federal frameworks from which seasons may be selected, a direct link to a map of North Carolina’s Canada goose hunt zones, and a link to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2010 Status of Waterfowl video.
