WILMINGTON -- A reminder that it is not ducky to discharge a weapon within Wilmington city limits. You might not think of Wilmington as a fertile hunting ground, but police say they've had at least a dozen complaints in the past week from residents who say duck hunters are firing their weapons too close to their homes for comfort. They say there's been an increase in duck hunting in creeks off the Intracoastal Waterway. Wilmington officers want to remind hunters it is not ok to fire their weapon in the city limits. WPD Lt. Jeff Allsbrook said, "You cannot duck hunt in Hewlett's Creek, Shins Creek or Bradley Creek because there is a city wide no discharging your weapon ordinance." Outside of the city limits hunters are allow to open fire, that means it is OK to duck hunt in Whiskey Creek and Howes Creek.
