Be ready to share the woods this fall
Placeholder Image
Those who love the outdoors welcome cooler weather after a hot, humid summer. Hiking is more pleasant, and autumn's colors inspire nature photographers and artists. Birdwatchers search for unusual species during the fall migration. Hunters relish the chance to harvest game.
These groups need not conflict with each other. Simply be aware of others and know what activities
are allowed wherever you go. Considerate non-hunters will wear bright colors
and stay on trails and roads so as to not disturb sportsmen deeper in the woods. Likewise, ethical hunters will exercise safety and properly identify their target.
