Here in SC, as long as the property isn't in the town limits, the season is in and you have a valid hunting license, it would be perfectly legal regardless of whether you are using a rifle, shotgun, bow, cross bow, or spear. The provision in SC about proximity to houses and buildings doesn't apply when the landowner is hunting their own property, also as long as an individual is hunting private property ( or even Federal) the prohibition against Sunday hunting isn't applicable since that only applies to State owned lands and state controlled Federal Forestry lands. But, like was said, you should check with the NC DNR for your state's regulations.
BTW, I hunt my backyard and all of my family property even within 50 yards of the town limits and up to the property lines of a subdivision. I did fail to retrieve a nice buck I shot this past season that went into the back yard of one of the houses in that subdivision. My dog trailed the deer straight to that yard, but the homeowner had already taken my buck. Under SC law, I don't need permission to trespass in order to retrieve a dead deer, but this guy had gotten it before the dog took me to it.
