Bambi isn’t the only one who has to be concerned about getting shot during hunting season. You do too. Safety tips for hikers during hunting season begin with: Never wear antlers in the woods.
Like it or not, ’tis the season for hunters to a) harvest game for food and to cull herds, or b) slaughter animals who have never done anyone harm. [Please discuss among yourselves.]
You cannot change the hunting culture, but you can avoid getting shot.
During certain seasons, hunters must wear hunter orange viewable from all directions. If accompanied by a dog, the dog should also wear hunter orange or a very visible color on a vest, leash, coat or bandana. Hikers are advised to wear a bright orange hat, vest, shirt or coat, and to protect their dogs similarly.
