North Carolina does allow hunting of Canadian Geese. Details on this link: www.ncwildlife.org
Many ducks, geese and swan are legally hunted in the state (and the country)
Just in case you are asking because you know someone is shooting geese I thought I would add this. Geese legally harvested must be done so with a permit. If someone is shooting geese on their property they must still have a permit to hunt geese, or they have a depredation permit to kill nuisance geese. In North Carolina depredation permits are issued by US Fish and Wildlife. You can call them to check to see if a person has a depredation permit or a migratory bird hunting permit.

Anyone harvesting geese must always abide by any laws that pertain to discharging of firearms. As an example your neighbor in your development is shooting geese. He could have a depredation permit or a hunting license but the city/county/etc does not allow discharge of firearms. So in that case he is not legally shooting geese. So check with the city and see what their rules are on gun use.

Anytime your not sure about a situation you can always contact the wildlife enforcement hotline for advice. Their number to Report wildlife violations- 1-800-662-7137 A wildlife officer will check out the case and let you know. They do enforce hunting and trapping violations if someone is caught doing so without a permit.
