I just found out in North Carolina it is legal to shoot deer with a 22 cal. rifle.
This is what the NC Regulations has to say.
Look in hunting/trapping then click on FAQ's
then click Any restrictions on rifle caliber?
then click What is the smallest caliber rifle I can hunt with?
What is the smallest caliber rifle I can hunt with?
We do not, by statute, define what type of rifle you can hunt with. Most rifles are governed by federal firearms rules. .22 caliber rifles are legal for taking big game by state law, if they conform to federal firearm guidelines. You cannot use rifles to take/hunt migratory birds or wild turkey. Some local laws also prohibit or may have restrictions on rifle use. Please see Local Laws of the Regulations Digest for further information. See the Hunting/Trapping regulations and click on "Local Laws" here.
It is under the FAQ's section in hunting/trapping
I called the Regulations phone number and asked them to be sure about this.
And they said if it is not listed in the local laws for the county you are in then it is legal.
In my county Randolph county it only says.
The following is unlawfull in the counties indicated:
Randolph County -Hunt from the right-of-way of a public road.
Then I said so it is legal to hunt and shoot deer with a 22 cal. rifle.
And they said that it is legal.
So my question to every one that reads this is ?
Would you hunt deer with a 22 cal. rifle even if it is legal ?
What ever you do be carefull, and
remember to use ear plugs
