The North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission released a statement today informing watefowl hunters of changes to open hunting days in Uwharrie Game Land's Lewis Millpond waterfowl impoundment in Montgomery County. While this impoundment was previously open to hunting Monday through Saturday throughout past waterfowl seasons, this is not the case for the 2015-2016 seasons.

During non-holiday calendar weeks, hunting waterfowl on the impoundment will be open only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Waterfowling will also be open on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and the Martin Luther King Jr. holidays. Also, the impoundment will open to waterfowlers on the opening and closing days of each season.

With North Carolina’s waterfowl season right around the corner, now is the time for outdoorsmen to apply for permit waterfowl hunts. Oct 1 is the deadline for most of these hunts, and applications can be obtained from Wildlife Service Agents, online at the NC Wildlife website, or by calling (888) 248-6834 during normal business hours.

This season, the coastal region offers two new waterfowl hunting options. Thanks to the Wildlife Resource Commission’s Game Land Program, hunters have an additional tract of hunting land called the Texas Plantation Tract, which is located in Tyrrell County and governed by J. Morgan Futch Game Land. This adds six hunting blinds on waterfowl impoundments.
