A measure introduced in the North Carolina Senate on Wednesday seeks to amend the North Carolina constitution to affirm that it is a right of the public to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife.
Language in Senate Bill 889 reads: The right of the people to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, including by the use of traditional methods, shall not be infringed, subject to laws and regulations to promote wildlife conservation and management, to maintain natural resources in trust for public use, and to preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. Nothing herein shall be construed to modify any provision of law relating to eminent domain, trespass or property rights.
Hunting, fishing, and harvesting wildlife are not only cherished North Carolina traditions, but paired with science, are an integral part of wildlife management and conservation.

Armed N.C. Man Stops Home Intruders
A North Carolina homeowner recently used his firearm to stop a pair of home intruders in their tracks.
According to local media reports, the Samson County resident said two men broke into his home early May 20—one of them armed with a machete. The homeowner retrieved his gun and shot the man wielding the machete, causing both intruders to flee the scene.
Police later caught the duo. One of the men was arrested and charged with breaking and entering and conspiracy to break and enter. The intruder with the gunshot wound, who was taken to the hospital for treatment and then transferred to Wake Medical Center, will also be charged with breaking and entering and conspiracy to break and enter.
