Folks,

I wanted to pass along the latest update from Lake Norman Delta Waterfowl on this matter. As mentioned in my previous post we were successful in getting the verbiage changed on House Bill 186 to protect our hunting right on Lake Norman and were awaiting confirmation of the same on Senate Bill 142. After several phone and email communications, we have finally received feedback from Senator Tarte that a PCS is complete for S142 and will be introduced whenever they go to committee. This PCS will include the same verbiage as H186 referencing Chapters 75A and 113 of the General Statutes.

I will be keeping a very close eye on this to ensure that it gets in and promise that if for some reason it does not, we will continue to fight this battle.

Thanks again for all of your support and feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Your Lake Norman Delta Waterfowl Committee

Since they are going with enforcing a noise odinance, what does that mean for duck hunters?

If the towns have a vague and open-ended definition of unreasonable noise, I would think they could prevent duck hunting if you sat out there and farted.


If the Towns' ordinances have a specified decibel level, and the hunters are far enough from homes, there may be some room.
With that said, if this was passed specifically because of ducks and guns, then I bet it is lights out.

Too bad. I have a nickel that this was caused by some poor judgement on some hunters parts, combined with ignorant homeowners who wouldn't know the difference between a 12 gauge and a 30-30 if they had one in each hand.

man, this REALLY sucks for guys who hunted there. I am sorry to hear of this.

yeah the way i read it, it puts the power in the hands of the towns and that isnt good for hunting.
