NC Urban Archery Season

The North Carolina Urban Archery Season runs from January 9 to February 14, 2021. The intention of the Urban Archery Season is to enable cities, towns, and villages to reduce urban deer populations through increased hunter opportunity. Hunting during the Urban Archery Season is allowed ONLY in participating municipalities. Each city, town, and village will decide if hunting is allowed on public property and restrictions, if any, for hunting on private property within the city, town, and village limits. Hunters wishing to hunt in an area participating in the Urban Archery Season should call the participating city, town, or village or visit its website to obtain a map showing lawful areas to hunt and additional information on specific restrictions that may apply to each area. The Urban Archery Season does not obligate private landowners to allow hunting on their property, nor does it eliminate the ethical requirement for obtaining permission from the landowner before hunting. Hunters are legally required to obtain written permission to hunt on posted property. Season bag and possession limits for both antlerless and antlered deer, including Bonus Antlerless Harvest Report Cards, that apply to the general archery, black powder, and gun deer seasons also apply to the Urban Archery Season. Deer of either sex may be harvested in participating areas during the Urban Archery Season. For more information visit North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (
