RALEIGH, N.C. (May 30, 2014) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is inviting public comments beginning June 2 on the early waterfowl and webless migratory game bird hunting seasons.

The seasons include dove, woodcock, rail, snipe and those waterfowl seasons beginning prior to Oct. 1. Input on extended falconry seasons for webless species also will be taken at this time. Comment on proposed dates for the seasons by going to www.ncwildlife.org and clicking on “Submit Your Comments!”

Comments will be accepted June 2-22.

Every year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides frameworks from which state fish and wildlife agencies select their respective hunting season dates. After reviewing public comments, Wildlife Commissioners will select season dates for North Carolina during the July 10 Commission meeting.
