Home From The Hunt™ is a nationally recognized campaign that encourages everyone to be prepared and be safe during time spent outdoors.
Home From The Hunt™ teaches — and sportsmen practice — stewardship of natural resources. Sportsmen provide the economic backbone for maintaining habitats, conducting wildlife research and resource protection. Mentoring and youth involvement in the outdoor-related recreation are provided through programs such as Becoming an Outdoors-Woman, youth hunts, disabled sportsmen and mobility impaired hunting and fishing opportunities, and a fishing tackle loaner program.
Home From The Hunt™ hosts the annual Youth Hunter Safety Skills Tournaments for competition in shotgun, rifle archery and orienteering for senior (high school) and junior (middle and elementary schools) division teams.
It is also an individual hunter’s responsibility to observe all regulations and local restrictions, as stated in the current Inland Fishing,Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest.
All licenses and permits may be obtained online, directly from the Wildlife Resources Commission in person at NCSU Centennial Campus, 1751Varsity Drive, Raleigh, NC, by mail, or via wildlife service agents throughout North Carolina.
