No. Except for those who are exempt from hunting license requirements, such as a landowner and his immediate family hunting on their own land, a hunting license is required for hunting crows.

Crows are classified as migratory non-game birds. However, they are subject to hunting seasons that are established by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission under USFWS guidelines to comply with international agreements regarding certain migratory birds.

The crow season is listed in the Commission’s Regulations Digest and on the website, www.ncwildlife.org.
