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.
