Today, June 27, House Bill 559 is scheduled for second reading in the North Carolina Senate. HB 559, introduced by state Representative Chris Millis (R-16), would remove unnecessary and arbitrary restrictions on hunting in North Carolina. This bill directs the Wildlife Resources Commission, which is tasked with managing hunting in the Tar Heel State, to study allowing the hunting of migratory birds on Sundays, with the goal of establishing regulations to allow such hunting. The bill also would expand where hunting can take place to include public lands. Current law does not allow for hunting of migratory birds on Sunday, and only allows Sunday hunting on private land.
Please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT HB 559!
