The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will increase fees beginning July 1.

These fees are for hunting, fishing, trapping and activity licenses, permits, stamps and certifications.

The fee adjustments are based on the total increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers since the last fee increase of January 1, 2020, the commission said. It will help the agency with operating costs exacerbated by inflation and increased demand for its services.

The NCWRC is funded by the sale of licenses, vessel titles and registrations, federal grants, general fund appropriations and other receipts. 

Funds generated from license sales on average make up approximately 25 percent of annual agency revenue, the commission said. 

These funds and others are used to support agency programs focused not only on species management and habitat enhancement, but on enforcement, education and public access.
