It’s October and the temperatures are dropping! And according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife website, October is the start of hunting season for many types of game: black bear, moose, turkey, deer, crow, waterfowl, grouse, snipe, gray squirrel, rabbit and hare, coyote, raccoon, foxes, mink, skunk, opossum, weasel, otter, muskrat, beaver, etc.
So while you are out enjoying Fall colors, running the dogs, hiking with the dogs, be careful. Wear some orange, maybe a bell, to warn hunters and any hunting dogs that you and your dogs aren’t game during this hunting season.
