Urban Archery Season
January 13-February 18, 2024

The Town of Trent Woods will participate in the upcoming Urban Archery Season, which will run from January 13 - February 18, 2024.  The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) established the Urban Archery Season to enable cities, towns and villages to reduce urban deer populations through increased hunter opportunity.

If you are a prospective hunter, there are a few things you need to know:

  • Hunting with the use of archery equipment, as defined by the NCWRC, is allowed only on private property within the Town limits.  The discharge of firearms within the Town is generally prohibited.

  • The Town does not permit hunting on Town-owned/public property.

  • The Town does not issue special hunting permits, but it does require prospective hunters to obtain written permission from the owner of the property on which they intend to hunt.  A sample landowner permission form, provided by the NCWRC, can be found Here.

  • The Town does not maintain a list/map of private property available for hunting.

  • All NCWRC hunting regulations and reporting requirements apply, and prospective hunters must have a valid hunting license issued by the NCWRC.

  • If you have any further questions, please feel free to Contact Us.
