RALEIGH N.C. (Dec. 7, 2017) – What do you think about allowing migratory bird hunting on Sunday?  Currently Sunday hunting for migratory birds, including waterfowl, is prohibited. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission urges you to attend a public meeting 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.
