Hunting Season FAQ
♦ Since the deer are “white-tailed”, avoid wearing white when in the woods during hunting season.
♦ Wear something blaze orange. Also if you have a dog, tie something brightly colored around their neck. Blaze orange vests are also available for dogs.
♦ Hike midday since hunters are normally out early morning or late afternoon.
♦ Hunters in TBV are required to park in the Permit Parking Area (inside the gate). If you see a vehicle parked there then you know someone is hunting.
♦ The TBV hunting area is on the west side. Over half of TBV and all of Crow Hill and Jump Hill (700 acres) are outside the hunting area. There are hunting-free trails from all of the access points.
♦ All other Aspetuck Land Trust preserves are hunting-free.
