It is also an individual hunter’s responsibility to observe all regulations and local restrictions, as stated in the current Inland Fishing,Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest.

All licenses and permits may be obtained online, directly from the Wildlife Resources Commission in person at NCSU Centennial Campus, 1751Varsity Drive, Raleigh, NC, by mail, or via wildlife service agents throughout North Carolina.
