Hunts take place in open areas of the base that are not being used for training exercises, with a sign-in sheet for each area posted the evening before each hunting day. Be aware that most areas fill up on holiday weekends and season opener weekends. Hunters must attend an hour-long orientation course held at the base's Hunting and Fishing Center at 1 p.m. every Friday during hunting season. Hunters must also purchase a $20 annual Fort Bragg hunting permit. To obtain this permit, hunters must show proof of completion of a hunter safety course, and have already purchased both a basic state hunting license (non-residents pay $25 for six days or $40 for a calendar year) and a big game license (also $25 or $40 as above).
No guide service is available, but maps may be obtained by sending a request to PWBC, Wildlife Branch. As regards accommodations, civilians must stay off-base, most likely in nearby Fayetteville. For more information on area lodging, contact the Fayetteville Convention and Visitors Bureau.
