Attention fall cyclists! If you’re out riding gravel or mountain bike trails we want to remind everyone to be safe during the fall hunting season. Please remember to dress visibly and wear bright orange if possible.
While the popular deer hunting season in Ontario varies by region and hunting method, in most areas it runs October to the first two weeks of December.
Check with your local trail or conservation management organization for hunting policies, but be aware hunting may take place in the following areas: Crown land, municipal/county forests, limited number of provincial parks and wildlife areas, some conservation areas, and private land.
