Know the law before you hit the woods

Written by 

Don’t forget you must get written permission from landowners and leaseholders before hunting, fishing or trapping on privately owned, posted property in North Carolina under a new state law.

The Landowner Protection Act provides two ways for landowners to post their lands to allow only hunters, trappers and anglers with this prior permission to enter their property legally. Landowners can now post their land by using vertical purple paint marks on posts or trees to indicate no trespassing, or, as in the past, by placing signs or posters.

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has posted information on its website about the new Landowner Protection Act.

The website also contains answers to frequently asked questions about the law.

I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
