RALEIGH — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission accepted 40 proposed changes related to wildlife management, inland fisheries and game lands for the 2021-22 seasons. The effective date for these regulations is Aug. 1, 2021.

Among the changes are Sunday hunting on game land adjustments and approving 45 seven-days-per-week game lands, where hunting is allowed Monday through Sunday during open seasons, and six four-days-per-week game lands, where hunting is allowed Tuesday through Sunday during open seasons.


Also approved were remote trap-checking systems under specified conditions, a new private land program for specific management of bobwhite quail, and combining two public Mountain Trout catch-and-release classifications into a single classification.
