RALEIGH, N.C. (July 29, 2011) -- The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is inviting citizens to provide input on regular waterfowl hunting seasons online on the Commission’s website.

Regular waterfowl seasons may 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.” Comments on the proposed season dates will be accepted until Aug. 15.

The Commission’s website will also list 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 2011 Status of Waterfowl video. More information on waterfowl and migratory game birds in North Carolina is available online.
