Rabbit, jackrabbit, hare, and squirrel hunting are closed during shotgun deer season.

Gray Squirrel

Rifles and handguns of any caliber permitted in Zones 1-9, prohibited in Zones 10-14. No trapping or netting. Shotgun or bow and arrow only during the pheasant and quail seasons on WMAs stocked with pheasant or quail (see WMA Regulation #9, Wildlife Management Area Regulations). Hunting hours ½ hour before sunrise to ½ hour after sunset except on Wildlife Management Areas where pheasant or quail are stocked during the open season on pheasant and quail, when hunting hours are from sunrise to sunset (see WMA Regulation #10, Wildlife Management Area Regulations).

RABBIT, HARE, AND JACKRABBIT

Hunting hours ½ hour before sunrise to midnight except on certain WMAs (see WMA Regulation #10 Wildlife Management Area Regulations).

RECREATIONAL VEHICLES

(ATVs, OHVs, dirt bikes, etc.)

Recreational vehicles are inherently damaging to most environments in which they are operated. It is illegal to operate any motorized vehicle on any WMA or other property owned or controlled by the DFW; on most state park and state forest lands; and it is illegal to operate them on private lands without the written permission of the landowner. Moreover, legislation enacted in 2010 (Chapter 202 of the Acts of 2010) strengthens the regulation of these recreation vehicles, increases penalties for violations, prohibits the unauthorized use of recreation vehicles on public property; imposes new operator age restrictions, which may be further modified by the MA Environmental Police (MEP) through regulation; and establishes a fund to support riding opportunities and law enforcement and regulatory activities. For more information, contact the Safety Bureau in MEP at (508) 759-0002, or go to www.mass.gov/eea/grants-and-tech-assistance/enforcement/environmental-police and click on the Safety Bureau link.

Regulations in red are new this year.
