Winter hunting on public conservation lands

Walker at Waskosim’s Rock Reservation in Chilmark

Deer season is over, but hunting for small game continues into the winter 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.

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. Safety tips: wear blaze orange and keep dogs leashed at all times.

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