Several license fees for hunting, inland fishing and trapping through the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission have changed this month.
The changes include:
While the prices have increased for many hunting, fishing and trapping licenses, the majority increased by less than $10 and there is no increase for resident lifetime licenses. This year is the first time since 1987 that the Commission has raised license fees.
To purchase a license: call 888-248-6834, go to ncwildlife.org/licensing or contact your local Wildlife Service Agent.
Physical stamps may be obtained directly from select post office locations. For more info, visit https://www.duckstamp.com/.
To hunt migratory waterfowl in North Carolina, hunters must have a valid North Carolina hunting license, HIP (Harvest Information Program) certification and a state waterfowl hunting license, also known as the state duck stamp, which is $13. Along with the state duck stamp, hunters also must have a federal duck stamp to hunt migratory waterfowl. These requirements apply to anyone 16 years old and older to hunt waterfowl in North Carolina.
