Hunters and Hikers in Pisgah - Be Aware

The accidental fatal shooting that occured in the Turkey Pen Gap area last month is a tragic reminder that both hunters and hikers must take precautions to be aware of each other. Be careful out there so we can all safely enjoy the forest!

- Get detailed hunting information at the Pisgah Visitor Center
- Know the times of year with increased hunting activity
- Wear bright clothing (hats & jackets) to differentiate yourself
- Keep pets nearby
- If you hear hunter activity, don't push your luck. Pick a different trail or area!
