        Judy,
        When a firearm is seized in a hunting related incident, the officer can ask the judge for forfeiture of the weapon to the State or the judge can return the weapon to the owner. When the weapon is forfeited it is held in evidence for 1 year due to the appeal process, then sent to Matapeake (NRP’s central gun safe) for destruction, or in some cases the weapons are used by NRP officer for hunter safety instruction. ATV’s are the more common seizure, and when they are forfeited to the State NRP usually uses them in our patrol function. Cars/Trucks/boats are sold at auction.

        Thanks for your inquiry.

      Yep. I took Hunter’s Safety Training as a teenager in North Carolina and to this day remember the pile of confiscated firearms that the officer brought in for instructional purposes.
