RALEIGH, N.C. (Sept. 27) – Due to severe drought conditions, some coastal waterfowl impoundments may lack adequate water levels for hunting, according to the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

Most impoundments are filled by pumping water from adjacent sources, but this approach may not be an option unless the Coastal area receives significant rainfall in the coming weeks.

All impoundments on the Roanoke River Wetlands Game Land currently are unable to be flooded and will be dry during early season hunting.

The following may also lack sufficient water sources to flood completely: Lodge Road Impoundment and portions of the Greentree Impoundments on Holly Shelter Game Land, parts of the J. Morgan Futch Impoundment, and much of the rainfall-dependant Parker Farm, which is part of the Goose Creek Game Land.

Many of these locations offer randomly drawn special permit hunts, which require a $5 application fee per entry. While the drawings will still take place, applicants should understand that drought conditions may negatively impact hunting opportunities.
