Thread: Gamelands rule change
H29) Remove restrictions on firearms allowed on game lands during open hunting seasons but while big game seasons are closed.
15A NCAC 10D .0102 General Regulations Regarding Use
Looks like we can have a pistol larger than 22 on gamelands now after the big game season. :celebrateWhat a silly law anyway. And since these have no closed season.
GROUNDHOG, NUTRIA, COYOTE AND SKUNK (striped)
There is no closed season or bag limit.
Some areas are worse than others. Some of you may have never had a problem. But I have a good source that one of the wardens in the area I trout fish was fond of seizing firearms Per the old law. A little common sense for the gun folks.
Season info here
New proposals addopted here.
Edit: FYI the rules don't take effect until July 1st 2009 unless someone can find out differently.
