Amends GS 103-2 (Method of take when hunting on Sunday). Replaces the currently proposed prohibitions on hunting of wild animals and upland game birds on Sunday on private land or on public lands of the State managed for hunting within 500 yards of a place of worship in existence on or before June 1, 2017, or any accessory structure thereof, with a prohibition on hunting on Sunday within 500 yards of a place of religious worship, as defined by GS 14-54.1, or any accessory structure thereof (deleting the requirement that it exist by the particular date). Makes an identical replacement to the prohibition of hunting migratory birds on Sunday within 500 yards of a place of worship.
