RALEIGH, N.C. (May 27, 2011) – Starting June 1, the N. C. Wildlife Resources Commission is inviting public comments 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 October 1. Input on extended falconry seasons for webless species will also 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 from June 1 through June 19.
Every year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides frameworks from which to choose the seasons, and the Commission selects the actual dates within these guidelines.
