Rule would limit dog hunting on some game land

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is accepting comments on a proposed temporary rule change that would prohibit using dogs to hunt deer and bear on certain portions of game land. The proposed rule is designed to address trespass and safety concerns of adjacent private landowners.

If approved, the rule would take effect July 1 and remain effective up to 270 days while the commission pursued an identical, permanent rule. 

The proposed rule is online at http://www.ncoah.com/rules/. Comments must be received by May 9.
