RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — COVID-19 has canceled the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s three in-person meetings for January, but Thursday night’s virtual hearing will still give hunters and fishermen a chance to learn about new regulation proposals.

The commission will meet tonight to review changes they’re proposing for the 2022-2023 season. The changes could impact inland fishing, hunting, trapping, game lands and other regulated activities.

The public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. and those interested can watch the meeting via Zoom.

The NCWRC is accepting public comments on the proposals through Jan. 31 and can be submitted during the public comment portion of tonight’s hearing, via the commission’s online comment portal, via email to regulations@ncwildlife.org (name, phone number and mailing address must be included in the email), or by sending a letter to Rule-Making Coordinator, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, 1701 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1700.
