Hunters Use Caution on Roadways

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

North Dakota hunters are reminded to be cautious on roadways, as farmers and ranchers are currently busy with fall farm duties.

With most hunting seasons open and producers harvesting crops, moving cattle and hauling bales, road traffic is sure to be heavy at times. With that in mind, hunters are asked to move to the side of the road and allow wide farm vehicles to pass, park their vehicles in a place that will not block a roadway, field approach or gate, pick up trash and empty shells, and not clean game in the road ditch or approach.

In addition, hunters should avoid driving off-trail through tall vegetation due to dry ground conditions.
