Go to the NWRC web site and send then a e-mail. Sunday hunting is not a proposed hunting change but the NCWRC has hired a company to do a public survay on opinions about Sunday hunting, and the NCWRC will include your e-mail in the survay.
I am oposed to Sunday hunting and wanted to voice my opinoins also so I sent them a e-mail, and here is what I got back.
Thank you for your letter concerning North Carolina’s Sunday hunting law.
Hunting on Sunday is prohibited in North Carolina through General Statute 103-2, passed by the General Assembly in 1869. Any change to the statute that would allow hunting on Sunday must be made by the General Assembly. The Wildlife Resources Commission (WRC) does not currently have the authority to regulate hunting on Sunday.
At the request of the 2005 General Assembly and Governor Easley, our agency is coordinating a study to evaluate the attitudes and opinions of North Carolina’s citizens regarding hunting on Sundays. Our objective in coordinating this study is to gather information that will assist the Governor and the General Assembly in determining whether a change in the Sunday hunting law is appropriate.
We have contracted with Responsive Management, Inc., an internationally recognized authority on public opinion research in the wildlife profession, to conduct a study over the next year using standard public opinion survey methods. Responsive Management will gather opinions about Sunday hunting from various stakeholder groups across the state and conduct an extensive telephone survey of the general public to evaluate the breadth and strength of these opinions. The study will also examine potential impacts on North Carolina’s economy, hunting seasons, management of hunted wildlife populations, and the operations of the WRC. At the conclusion of the study Responsive Management will provide a final report that will be transmitted to the General Assembly and to the Governor’s Office.
We will compile your letter with others on the subject of Sunday hunting and present them all to the Governor and General Assembly as an addendum to the final report.
Thank you again for contacting us. I hope this information has been helpful to you.
Hope this helps,
