I didn't have to renew my hunter safety in NC. I've been doing those classes most of my life since my grandparents taught it in Michigan. So I got my hunting and trapping license.
What I hate about this state, there's nowhere to hunt. Not unless you're willing to cough up thousands of dollars to be part of a club. It's sickening. There were more lands for hunting in southern california than there are here. I just had to drive about 35 miles to get anything there. Here the closest I have is about 80 miles. It's silly.
There's so many deer here that it's retarded. The turkeys sit out in people's front lawns. Don't even get me on the smaller critters that are in mass abundance.
Oh and when it comes to foraging in state land I can't touch a plant? That's pretty retarded in my opinion as well
