I live in an area as described above, with hunting-crazed people. Someone actually shot a pet burro!!!
The ideas mentioned are all good, but I stay off trails during hunting season. Even on Sunday, some people sight in their guns, or target shoot (or poach???) so better safe than sorry!!!
We have lots of dirt roads, too, but as noted above, sometimes they just shoot at something moving. No thanks! I just don't take the chance.
I went out to feed the horses during the first day of hunting, and there was someone within 200 feet of me, shooting in the other direction, but TOO close! Scared the daylights out of my horses, despite them being used to shots, 'cause he was SO close. I hollered, asked him to get away from the horses, as I was actually afraid he would scare them into stomping me. Unnerving!
