  • 2017 Fall Hunting Season Dates for Easter North Carolina

    There will be hunters out in the Croatan NF Monday thru Saturday during these dates ( no hunting allowed on Sundays ). As a hiker you are not required to wear blaze orange but I highly recommend that you do so when out hiking the trails during these days. You can purchase a blaze orange base ball hat at WalMart for a few dollars. I also made a couple of blaze orange pack covers for my backpacks for extra visibility. I have never had a problem with any of the hunters I have come across while hiking and I hope they bag a deer ( I like venison too but I don't hunt )

    Link to Eastern Deer Season chart:

    I have never encountered a hunter during turkey season. They are out there, I just have not seen them ( although I do see plenty of turkeys out in the woods ).
