Game Lands Programs

Some 2,000,000 acres of public and private lands in North Carolina are managed by the Wildlife Resources Commission for public hunting, trapping and fishing, and are designated collectively as Game Lands. This includes hunting on the Roanoke River National Wildlife Refuge, which is managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Wildlife Resources Commission through a joint venture. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission gratefully acknowledges the following government agencies and private companies who have leased property to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission for public use (see below).
