As the days in Liberty County are growing shorter and the heat of the summer is slowly receding, we can catch a glimpse of fall in the distance. It won’t be long before cooler winds drift through those Georgia pines. One of the best fall activities we love is walking through those trees in pursuit of game. Yes, you heard right, fall in Liberty County means hunting season is near!

A few simple rules for non-hunters during hunting season
Always be visible!
Visible means safe. This is a tip for people and animals alike. Always wear reflective vests. Don’t walk your dog without a vest in the woods as you may be mistaken for prey.
Use common sense!
Don’t let dogs off the leash in wooded areas as they may run off after actual hunting dogs and get lost. Avoid walking in the woods during dawn and dusk, as those are the prime times for hunting.
If you frequent a particular wooded area make sure you inform yourself about its hunting status.
Stay on the marked trails!
Do not wander off the beaten path during hunting season. You will put yourself and the hunters at risk.
