A risky time of year for wild game such as deer, pheasant, turkey ~ and risky, too, for humans who hike the hills. Always check with a ranger station or Department of Fish and Game for your state to find out if there is an active hunting season in progress and where. Some states have a website for their Department of Fish and Game ~ http://search.yahoo.com/bin/search?p=department+of+fish+and+game. Otherwise, check the blue pages of your phone book for the phone number. Protect yourself by wearing bright colors during any hunting season ~ even if hunting is illegal where you're hiking.

The ATC web site always has current information on hunting seasons in each state.
