Hunters, who are easily recognizable by wearing blaze orange hats, coats and vests, must follow these guidelines:

  • Handle firearms with care and attention at all times.

  • Do not shoot from a vehicle or carry a loaded firearm in or on a vehicle.
  • Do not shoot from or across a right of way for public vehicular traffic.
  • Do not drink alcohol and hunt.
  • Always have permission to hunt on lands that you don't own.

Hunters are reminded to know and follow the rules. Consult the 2014-2015 Hunting Regulations Summary available at
