The white-tailed deer hunting season timetable for Zone 5 is as follows:
October 1 – October 14: crossbow and bow 

October 15 – October 19: shotguns, muzzle-loading firearms, crossbow and bow 

November 5 – November 20: rifle and crossbow 

For more information go to:  If you witness poaching, you should report it to SOS Poaching 1-800-463-2191

It is always a good precaution to wear orange or brightly coloured clothing when walking in the woods, especially during hunting season.
