Ban Of Hunting From Roadside Clears Another Hurdle

Posted May 5, 2005 4:16 a.m. EDT

— If Gov. Mike Easley approves, then people will no longer be able to hunt from the roadside in Vance County.

On Thursday, a bill to make it illegal to hunt on major roadways cleared the state Senate -- its final hurdle in the Legislature.

The law also makes it illegal to shoot across roads while on the hunt.

Violators could get a $250 fine.
