COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Don’t expect to be able to alligator hunt in Lake Waccamaw.

The board of commissioners voted three to one against the idea.

Mayor Daniel Hilburn says the board did not think they had enough information to move forward.

Also, some residents were concerned about hunting around their homes, even though officials were only talking about hunting in the creek areas.

In the end, the board voted against allowing the Wildlife Resources Commission come in and do an in-depth study on issuing permits.
