Hiking during hunting season

Hiking safely during hunting season is paramount for the well-being of both hikers and hunters alike. This time of year brings unique challenges and risks that require careful consideration and adherence to safety measures. Here's what to know before you go: 

  • Know the season: Be aware of hunting seasons and regulations in your area.
  • Wear bright colors: Dress in blaze orange or other highly visible colors to be seen by hunters.
  • Stay on trails: Stick to established hiking trails to avoid wandering into hunting zones.
  • Make noise: Be vocal and use a bell or whistle to alert hunters to your presence.
  • Avoid dusk/dawn: Hike during daylight hours and avoid early morning or late evening when hunting is more common.
  • Pets leashed: Keep pets on a leash and in bright colors.
  • Communication: Inform someone of your hiking plans and expected return time.
  • Respect hunters: Be courteous to hunters you encounter and avoid disrupting their activities.
  • Research: Check local hunting maps and websites for specific rules and areas to avoid.
