During hunting seasons, whether on public or private undeveloped land, you want to be seen. Wear bright clothing, preferably hunter or blaze orange for all light conditions. Avoid clothing with fur or tans and whites (like a running deer). Shine a light when out at dawn/dusk or at night.
No one should ever be off of the paved roads unless on a scheduled military training exercise, or a scheduled and coordinated activity (such as through the Hunting and Fishing Center), or at a specific forest recreation facility (such as Smith Lake). To do so is a citable offense, and can be both dangerous to the individual and constitute a serious impediment to our essential military training operations.
Fall is a great time to enjoy nature in the many and beautiful and safe places both on and around Fort Bragg. But as in all activities, consideration of safety rules and procedures must always be Priority One.
For questions about hunting and fishing on Fort Bragg, stop by the Hunting and Fishing Center, or visit http:/www.bragg.army.mil/directorates/dpw/envdiv/wildlife.
