Officials advise hunters to be on the lookout for new hazards that have cropped up due to the fire, like weakened trees or areas that are still smoldering.

The Table Rock wildfire has burned nearly 2,600 acres and is about 80 percent contained. The fire started Nov. 12 in the Pisgah National Forest in Burke County.
