North Carolina Governor Signs Apprentice Hunting License Into Law

Logo 2North Carolina Governor Signs Apprentice Hunting License Into Law

Safari Club International commends North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory for signing into law Families Afield, Senate Bill 234. This bill was sponsored by the North Carolina Sportsmen’s Caucus Leadership, Senator Newton, and Representatives Bell, Moffitt, Martin and Wray.

This new law will allow individuals to participate in hunting with the supervision of a licensed adult before they commit to taking educational courses and buying licenses – the “try before you buy” model – to ensure more outdoorsmen and women are attracted to hunting.

SCI’s North Carolina chapters have been very supportive of S.B. 234 as it progressed through the NC legislature. Achieving final passage ensures that youth education programs across the state can be expanded.

Please take a moment during the month of June, which Governor McCrory has designated as “Great Outdoors Month”, and thank the Governor and legislators who supported this valuable legislation.
