Hunters might soon be hunting coyote and wild swine at night with a light on private lands.
The new regulations are year-round, seven days a week. Hunting on Sundays is allowed only on private lands with archery equipment.
The new regulations are scheduled to take effect Aug. 1 pending final approval by the Rules Review Commission of the N.C. Wildlife Commission. Currently, there is no closed season on either species, but hunting them at night is not allowed except by permit for feral swine.
