Deer hunting is permitted on some island conservation lands from Oct. 3 – Dec. 31. Hunting is allowed Monday through Saturday, starting ½ hour before sunrise and ending ½ hour after sunset. Hunting is NOT allowed on Sundays in Massachusetts.
All walkers, bikers, and others using public trails should:
• Check beforehand to see whether hunting is allowed where you’re headed.
• Wear blaze orange or other bright color to alert hunters to your presence.
• Make sure your dog is leashed at all times.
• Avoid walking at dawn and dusk, when visibility is low and animal activity increases (making those times of day popular for hunting).
See detailed information from Trails MV and the All-Island Trails Committee.
