The North Carolina General Assembly and Wildlife Resources Commission have worked cooperatively to expand opportunities for persons with disabilities to participate in hunting, fishing and other related outdoor activities. In keeping with the intent and spirit of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), great strides have been made towards providing reasonable access and opportunities for hunters and anglers. Currently, North Carolina has one of the more progressive programs in the United States for sportsmen with disabilities. This effort is directed towards assisting access to favorable game and fish areas, allowing the use of equipment designed to overcome specific disabilities, and to encourage persons with disabilities to take advantage of the state's hunting and fishing opportunities. The Commission strongly urges any person with a disability that has a question or an interest in hunting and fishing to contact them.
