Hunters Use Caution on Roadways

Monday, September 30, 2013

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 busy at times, even on rural gravel roads. With that in mind, hunters are asked to move to the side of the road to 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.
