Fall is a wonderful time for hiking – and the beginning of hunting season! If you are hiking on a property that allows hunting, you must wear 200 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange (either a hat or a vest). This requirement is usually in place between the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the third Saturday in April to the last day in May, annually. Hikers are required to wear 500 square inches (a hat AND a vest) during shotgun season. This is usually in early December through early January. Learn more here.
