RALEIGH, N.C. (April 26, 2019) — At its business meeting yesterday, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission set season dates, bag limits and applicable regulations for the 2019-20 waterfowl, webless migratory game bird (including doves) and extended falconry seasons.
Selected seasons will also be published in the 2019-20 Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest.
While many seasons remain unchanged, some notable changes are:
Two duck hunting days for veterans and active members of the military will run concurrently with the youth-only waterfowl hunt days. These days, the result of the Natural Resources Management Act, allow up to two special duck hunting days for ducks, geese, brant, tundra swans, mergansers and coots.
Read a more detailed overview of the important changes to the 2019-20 seasons. (PDF)
