Deer hunting season now through Dec. 31

It’s shotgun season for deer hunting on Martha’s Vineyard. Some conservation lands are open to hunters, including the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest, many MV Land Bank preserves, and several Trustees of Reservations properties. Some are closed completely to non-hunters during gun season.

Shotgun Season:
Nov. 29 – Dec. 11, 2021

Primitive Firearms Season:
Dec. 13 – Dec. 31, 2021

While Martha’s Vineyard has a rich abundance of beautiful and diverse protected lands open to the public for walking, bicycling, bird-watching, running, and horseback riding, it’s important this time of year to be informed about hunting on many of these properties.

See detailed information from Trails MV and the All-Island Trails Committee.
