WoooHooo! I got the zone 54 permit and tags in the free lottery with my guard unit. I guess I'll be hunting there this muzzleloader season. Looks like end of November.
But it looks like they are limiting some areas this year due to Unexploded Ordnance (UXOs)
Here's what they posted:
BG Maddux and LTC Koehler have directed a temporary prohibition on recreational hunting and trapping in the following areas due to possible UXO. This prohibition applies immediately and will remain in effect until further instructions are provided:
2B, 2W, 3, 4, 5B (South of Peterson St./Babbit Rd. intersection), 6N, 6B, 7S, 8N, 9B, 11E, 13E, 13W, 17, 18E (East of Green Pond Brook), 20B.
Thank you for your cooperation. More information will be made available concerning the status of these hunting areas in the near future.
