Smart During Hunting Season
Hunting season is in
full swing in New England right now, which means you should
be careful out there. Some tips:
- Be especially cautious during shotgun and rifle (deer) season.
- Try not to ride in the early morning hours -- this is when many hunters are in the woods
- Wear a bell
- Wear bright colored clothing or a hunter orange vest. The latter is required by law in Rhode Island.
- Try to find places or times where hunting is prohibited.
(e.g., Maine and Mass. prohibits hunting on Sundays).
- Carry a cell phone and report poachers to the local police.
