always something in season
I am often called "Dear", occasionally "Turkey", rarely "Squirrel." So we take precautions in big game season. A BIG thanks to all the hunters - as mentioned above we recognize the importance of this.

So our precautions are:
  • Blaze orange hats
  • After reading this I may pick up vests.
  • We also usually end up focusing on High Peaks. AMR land, ADK Loj area - I think these areas are less used by deer and hunters.
  • I thought recently about bear bells too. Not concerned about the bruins but figure the jingling would alert hunters. Unless they have a tag for flying reindeer.

Would be great if the hunting season reduced some of the overuse.
