Turkey Hunting in North Carolina
Okay, sure it's a dumb question , but.....
Okay, I have no doubt this would be a dumb law, but it wouldn't be the first, right?
A co-worker told me today that it is illegal to shoot turkeys from a deerstand.
Okay, I could believe that to be a law.
But then he tells me you 'HAVE' to hunt from either a ground blind or use a gillie suit.
Not 'should' or 'could' but 'HAVE TO ' .
Okay, let me give some background:
This guy started hunting turkey about 2 or 3 years ago. He has probably hunted deer all his life, but turkeys are new to him.
When I told him turkey hunting seemed like it would be really fun, he told me :
'WEll, it might be years before you see a wild turkey. It's not like they just run around everywhere and come out any time>
So, I showed him about 15 different pictures of the turkeys that forage around my deerstnd and even two different vidoe taken from about 12 feet away>
TOld him I have seen up to 9 turkeys at one time.
Told him my idea of hunting in the stand since the turkeys do not seem to be bothered by it or know I am there.
Today, out of the blue, he tells me that stand hunting turkeys is illegal.
I am really thinking he is just made or being spiteful( no, not pulling my leg).
But I also know that there are also all kinds of stupid laws on the books too.
What sayeth you?
