    NC Gamelands carry changes.

    We got OC and CC on Gamelands now! I'm stoked! This went through different channels than most of our law changes this year. These are internal regulations with the NCWRC. After a public comment period this is what the change looks like. Previously, outside of a hunting season we were restricted to a .22 handgun.



    POSSESSION OF FIREARMS ON GAME LANDS

    On State-owned game lands, and all other lands unless prohibited by the landowner, persons may lawfully carry any firearm openly that they are otherwise lawfully entitled to possess, and may also carry a concealed handgun if they possess a current and valid concealed handgun permit issued to them. However, persons may not hunt with any firearm being carried unless such firearm is authorized as a lawful method of take for that open season. The exempted game lands where concealed carry is prohibited are:

    Buckhorn
    Harris
    Sutton Lake
    Mayo
    Hyco
    Lee
    Chatham
    Pee Dee, area north of U.S. 74
    Butner-Falls
    Jordan
    Vance
    Kerr Scott
    Dupont
    Bladen Lakes
    Wayne Bailey-Caswell, area north of U.S. 158 and east of N.C. 119
    POSSESSION OF FIREARMS ON BOATING AND FISHING ACCESS AREAS

    No person shall possesses a loaded firearm on any public fishing or boating access area, with the exception of those who carry a concealed handgun with a valid concealed handgun permit, unless otherwise prohibited by the landowner and posted as such. This ruling also applies to wildlife conservation areas.

    POSSESSION OF FIREARMS AND BIG GAME RETRIEVAL

    A hunter may use a .22 caliber rimfire pistol or a handgun otherwise legal for that hunting season to dispatch a wounded big game animal, including during the archery and muzzleloader seasons.

    This is great news! Now I can fish and conceal carry without worry.
    Confidence is the feeling you have before you realize the full measure of the situation.
