    If you are bowhunter in North Carolina, you are full aware that bowhunting is illegal during the muzzle loading season. My opinion is that this old law needs to be changed. At least on private lands.

    There is a survey being taken where you can vote on this issue. Please take the time to read this survey info and respond. You do not have to be a member of the North Carolina Bowhunters Association to participate in the survey. But, I would ask that only those who bowhunt in NC participate.

    Feel free to pm or email me if have questions. Thank You.

    Here is the survey info:

    BOWHUNTER SURVEY (December 2005)

    This SURVEY was first sent out in 2002 to get an idea of how bowhunters feel about the current regulation that prohibits bowhunting during muzzle-loader season in N.C. We are sending it out again to get a “snapshot” of your opinion on this issue NOW that will serve to validate the results of the earlier survey. Please take a minute to respond to this survey by choosing either option “A” or “B” as listed below.

    "OPTION A"= I prefer that the rule remains the same. That is, that bowhunting is NOT allowed during the weeklong Muzzle-Loader (Black Powder) seasons statewide.

    "OPTION B"= I prefer the rule be changed to allow bowhunting during Muzzle-Loading (Black Powder) seasons. (*This should be allowed, AT LEAST, on PRIVATE LANDS that I own, lease, or have legal permission to hunt upon.)


    "Please" pass (Forward) this survey onto your bowhunting friends that may or may not be a NCBA member, but does Bowhunt and Muzzle Loader hunt.
