What kind of adjustments do you make during your state's various hunting seasons?
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

One of the main reasons I run trails is to enjoy the scenery and surroundings and solitude. When it is hunting season, it makes me too nervous to be out there, even though the chances of something happening are probably rare. Being on edge the whole time takes away the enjoyment of being out there, so I either stick to the roads during that time, or go to a public park and run trails where there are no hunters allowed.
Wearing an orange safety vest is probably a good idea if you're gonna venture out there.

So, out of respect for the hunters and their outdoor experience (not to mention you may have just spooked the buck of a lifetime away from a hunter that has been out there for years waiting for that one "shining moment") and, with safety in mind, I would suggest it best to stay out of the woods till the deer seasons have passed.

I stay out of the woods during hunting season except for Sundays. You never no when VP Cheney might be in the woods hunting.
I don't run in any hunting areas, but I leave my antler hat at home during hunting season.
