Recommendations (1-Oct to 31-Dec)
  • Ensure you are visible to possible hunters.  Dress in conspicuous clothes preferably orange jacket and/or touque
  • Do not hike where trails are closed, instead pick another trail
  • Respect the landowners right to hunt on their property
  • Dogs MUST be leashed (so they’re not mistaken for animals being hunted. Sadly, this has happened before)
Be aware that hunting at other times in the fall is possible.
