Castle Doctrine, Concealed Carry and the Wildlife Commission

Nov 30

Written by:

Legislation has changed concealed carry rules in North Carolina. The general consideration is the law allows more, rather than less, and that is true for game lands, boating access areas, fishing access areas and wildlife conservation areas managed by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.  I know the Castle Doctrine and Session Law 2011-268 have gotten lots of attention and generated questions. Learn more about rules for game lands, boating access areas, fishing access areas and wildlife conservation areas here.

Hurrah!! I wonder if the exempted game lands will be posted as required by GS 14-415.27?

While recent regulation changes by the WRC will now allow the possession of legally concealed carry weapons by archery and muzzleloader hunters, the agency seems to have overlooked the current ban on possession of a conceal carry by wild turkey hunters. Was this an oversite?

Where do you see a restriction on turkey hunting, Tony? Appears to me that the Castle Doctrine law supersedes any regulation of the WRC and that only the landowner can prohibit the carrying during any lawful activity.
