Sunday Hunting is now authorized for all Fort Bragg Hunting Permit holders! Migratory Bird Hunting (Dove, Duck, Goose, etc) is not authorized on Sundays IAW State Law. All deer harvested on Fort Bragg need to be brought to the Check Station.
Reminder: Hunters should always report harvest of any game when queried by iSportsman on signin (in addition to any state reporting).
Check Station, Harvest, and Other Reporting:
Your accurate harvest reporting is a vital part of Fort Bragg’s wildlife population modelling and management. Additionally, Biological Check Station data is essential to the monitoring of individual and herd health, vigor, recruitment, mortality, and disease; which in turn are applied to population management and harvest strategies. Under our current deer herd circumstances this data is imperative for our continued deer hunting, to ensure that our population and harvest is sustainable. We greatly appreciate hunter support by in all harvested deer.
We also appreciate hunter support in reporting any and all observations of unauthorized hunting, harvest, or other activity. Call us if you have a question, but call 907-4813 (911 Center) to both document and report any and all unauthorized activities so that we can shut them down.
