Hunting at Door County Land Trust
Door County Land Trust preserves accommodate a wide variety of
public uses including hiking, canoeing, cross country skiing, scientific
research and hunting. In order to create a safe and enjoyable
environment for all visitors to our preserves, we ask hunters to review
and comply with our hunting program policies and guidelines.
Hunters play an important role as conservation partners with the Door
County Land Trust by helping regulate and maintain the populations
of white-tailed deer and turkeys. The overabundance of these species
negatively impacts ecosystem health on lands we protect as well as the
entire Door peninsula. Hunters also provide valuable information from
the field that is used in making management decisions for Land Trust
Please be aware that lands on which the Door County Land Trust
holds a conservation easement are private property and the Land Trust
does not have the authority to grant permission to hunt on these lands.
There are a few properties owned by the Door County Land
Trust that are not open for any hunting seasons. These areas are
usually small in size, located in residential neighborhoods, or too
ecologically sensitive for off-trail foot traffic. However, most
of the lands owned by the Land Trust are open for hunting. The
list of preserves at which hunting is permitted, the seasons permitted and links to
printable hunting maps are located at the bottom of this page.
If you are interested in hunting on lands owned by the Door County
Land Trust, please carefully review the hunting policies below.
