I would definely have hunter orange on, and nix the bells. Those hunters may have payed $10 and up per acre. And, unhappy paid hunters equal a unhappy landowner, and that meants no more trail.
If its a guide hunt, the costs run from $5000 to the sky's the limit, that just of one week hunt..
You could also talk to hunters, if their any like they are here, you know them on sight. Local cafes, burger joints, and any place like that are a good place to look .
You might talk to game guides,if you do it right, You might even get a job riding as a wrangler. They could tell you were would be a safe place to ride.
We as hunters and horse poeple have enough enemies, and we can work together, to kept each other safe and help in our goals.
If the hunter owns the land and doesn't live on it. They might welcome someone to trail ride on it, in the off season. This would kept any eye out for proachers, big bucks, and varos ting that they won't see if they ain't there but few weeks a year.
I hope this gives you a few ideas on how to deal with hunters and hunting season, Good luck and stay safe
A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
