NC Wildlife Resources Commission
Bear e-Stamp Holder Survey

Welcome to the North Carolina Bear e-Stamp Holder Survey

The NCWRC is conducting this survey to help us make the best management decisions for black bears and bear hunters.
Please take a few minutes to complete this important questionnaire even if you did not hunt for bears during the 2023 season.

Please enter your WRC Customer Number:

Your response is very important. Your response will help us determine the annual number of active bear hunters in North Carolina and hunter success rates by harvest method. Your information will also help us determine if changes in harvest levels are due to changes in hunting methods, the number of bear hunters, or actual changes in bear population. This information will assist us in evaluating both current and future regulations and statutes, as well as management options.

We appreciate you taking an active part in the management of North Carolina's wildlife resources.
