Urban Archery Season:  Jan. 13-Feb. 17, 2018

The Town of Oak Ridge does participate in the state's Urban Archery Season. However, the Town does not have any land where archery hunting is permitted, nor does it keep a list of property owners who allow hunting on their property. Hunters must receive permission from individual landowners before hunting on their property.

The Urban Archery Hunting Season was implemented by the state of North Carolina in order to allow cities, towns, and villages to better control their deer populations.

• Deer harvested during the Urban Archery Season must be registered via telephone (1-800-I GOT ONE) or online at and shall NOT be registered with a wildlife cooperator agent.

• Daily and season bag limits, as well as possession limits, for both antlerless and antlered deer that apply to the general bow and arrow, muzzle loader, and gun deer seasons also apply to the Urban Archery Season.

• The hunter must have all applicable state hunting licenses. Licenses can be obtained online at, or by calling 1-888-2HUNTFISH.

• It is the responsibility of the hunter to obtain written permission of the property owner to hunt on the property.
