Riding restrictions on state trails with firearms deer season

Recreational use of off-highway vehicles will be restricted in some areas during the firearms deer hunting season.

The restrictions apply to designated recreational riding trails on state land, including grant-in-aid trails, state forest trails and access routes, but not state forest roads.

Licensed deer hunters may still use these routes in conjunction with their hunting activity before legal shooting time, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and after legal shooting hours.

Riding restrictions are in effect from Nov. 6 through Nov. 14.
