Welcome to the Fort Bragg Wildlife Branch

Hunting Update:    Unless rules or guidance comes out to prevent it (the situation changes continually) we anticipate at this time to scout and hunt turkeys business as usual.  Turkey hunters are dispersed at one hunter per 500 acres!   We may adjust turkey checkin procedures, in which case hunters will receive a notice of that when they signout. 

It took the better part of a week to extend all existing permits (as in a couple thousand) to June.  But that is now complete. 

Temporary Hunting and Fishing Permits

Hunting and Fishing Permits are issued at the Hunting & Fishing Center for many different reasons.  However, given extraordinary circumstances, we are accommodating with a temporary email process:

1.  Create an Account in bragg.iSportsman.net.

2.  Send an Email to fbisportsman@gmail.com

3.  Be sure that your email address matches the one on your iSportsman profile; and tell us your iSportsman user name so we can tell you from others with the same name.  Also, be sure you are clear whether you want a Fishing Permit or a Hunting and Fishing Permit (hunters must have State Hunter Safety and take an orientation).   

4.  As staff resources are available, you will be given either a temporary permit directly, or further instructions.  Please understand that we are on limited staff and we have thousands of constituents to correspond with.

5.  Once you are issued a permit, you can either print it from a computer, or use your smartphone (under My Account:Home) to show a Game Warden your valid permit.

6.  Remember NC State Hunting and/or Fishing Licenses are also required before you go to the field.


Due to COVID 19 the Hunting & Fishing Center is temporarily closed.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but appreciate your understanding. Rest assured, we understand how important hunting and fishing are to Soldier and family health and resiliency and the need to get/keep everyone out and safely enjoy our natural resources.



We had another great Turkey Hunting Seminar, with a big turn out on 4 Mar.  Thank you to our partners with the  NC Wildlife Commission and the National Wild Turkey Federation!
