Caution during hunting season

It's hunting season again and Coastal Mountains Land Trust would like to remind hikers, runners, bikers, hunters, and dog owners to wear blaze orange and to be alert while out in the woods. 

With the exception of Fernalds Neck, Hodson,

Harkness, McPheters, and Youngs Neck Preserves, our properties are open to hunting. Predator hunting and trapping is prohibited. Temporary deer stands are allowed with Land Trust permission. Stands must be labeled with a 2"x4" tag identifying the name and contact info of the stand owner, and stands must be removed from our property at the end of hunting season. Hunters are asked to use precautions and abide by all state regulations while on Land Trust properties.  

Maine state law prohibits hunting on Sundays, as well as discharging a firearm within 100 yards of any dwelling. The Land Trust also asks that no firearms are discharged within 300 feet of any trail. 


  • Wear blaze orange

  • Stay on the trail

  • Keep your dog on a leash

  • Use extra caution at dawn and dusk

  • Make some noise while hiking...if you hear hunters in the area, or hear shots, speak up - a loud "Hikers on the trail!"
