Title: Owl Woods - Amherst Island
Post by: Paul O'Toole on October 27, 2019, 09:51:40 am
"The Owl Woods is closed from 18 November to 8 December. The Owl Woods is private land. The owners ask birders to stay out of the Woods during hunting season. KFN asks all birders to honour this long- term agreement.

CAUTIONS!
This is deer hunting season! In South Frontenac, cross bow hunting is allowed
from 1 October to 31 December. Gun hunting is allowed from 4 to 17 November and from 2 to 8 December. Hunting is allowed on Sundays. When hiking and birding, wear bright colours, make noise.
Be prepared for Ticks. Wear long sleeves. Tuck long pants into socks. Use repellant."

Sage advice. Crossbows eh, who would have thought? I hope you didn't acquire this
cautious approach because of a fletching having tickled you as it whizzed past
your cheek during some past excursion. Hearing gunfire in the woods while birding
could give anyone's nerves a twist. Maybe a shot of outrageously coloured birders
cowering under a tree would be a relevant post under Dinu's Festival of Colour theme.
