Crows

Crow season is one of the only real summer hunting seasons in North Carolina. It opens at the start of June and goes through the end of February, according to the Wildlife Resources Commission. The days for hunting are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of each week plus holidays. There are no bag limits for hunting crow in North Carolina. This is the only migratory game bird that is open for hunting in the summer, with the remaining species having seasons in the fall.

Groundhogs, Striped Skunks, and Armadillos

Another group of animals for summer hunters to bag are small game species such as groundhogs, striped skunks and armadillos. Hunting of these animals is allowed year-round, with no closed season and no bag limits.

Coyotes

The coyote is a native North American animal, but it is considered an invasive species in North Carolina. Coyotes appeared in the 1980s in North Carolina as part of the natural range expansion from neighboring states and now live throughout the state. There is no closed season for coyotes. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recommends that people in suburban areas allow hunters access to their property to keep the coyote population in check. There is no limit, and when it comes to coyote hunting in North Carolina, it can be done day or night.

Feral Swine

Feral swine is the most dangerous of the invasive species in North Carolina, carrying disease and destroying crops and personal property. The hunting of these hogs can take place any time of the year, day or night, and there is not limit. However, it is important to recognize the difference between a feral swine and a regular farm hog.
