Be smart. Be visible in the woods in the fall.

Archery season for deer began locally on September 15. Muzzleloader season begins November 3 and regular firearms season runs from November 14 through December 9. Waterfowl, turkey and other bird seasons are also underway.

Hunting is allowed in Dunbarton's conservation areas.

Those who will be sharing the woods with hunters are advised to wear blaze orange or another highly visible color and lots of it to make yourself stand out. Do not wear tan or white. If you are out with your dog, make sure it is highly visible too.

Additionally, be careful not to trip over any squirrels . . .
