Hunting Season In Full Swing

Hunting season is in full swing in Eastern North Carolina, and thousands of people are expected to hunt over this holiday weekend. Hunters will be easily identifiable in their day-glo orange protective clothing.

The cooler temperatures are what they have been waiting for, and with school closed for the holiday, families can enjoy a day hunting for their favorite game.

Melvin Hill, co-owner of the Johnson Marsh Hunting Preserve in Lenoir County specializes in bird hunting, where he says a lot of families hunt together this time of year. And while hunting is a great recreation, you need to know and follow the rules.
