BE AWARE OF HUNTING ON THE TRAIL!

The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail traverses U.S. Forest lands that have long been popular hunting grounds in all seasons. All Trail users should be aware of these activities and not wear clothing that could be mistaken for wildlife. Bright colors and hunter orange eliminate most instances of mistaken identity.

BE AWARE IT'S HUNTING SEASON - WEAR ORANGE ON THE TRAIL!

We would like to remind everyone that modern gun deer season opens on November 14, 2020, and continues through December 6 in the Ouachita National Forest along the LOViT. Dogs are allowed to be used hunting for deer during this time. A second modern gun season is December 26-28, 2020. Note also these deer hunting dates: Archery - Sept. 26, 2020, through Feb. 28, 2021; Muzzleloader - Oct. 17-25 and Dec. 12-14, 2020; Youth modern gun hunt - Nov. 7-8, 2020, and Jan. 2-3, 2021. Be especially careful and be sure to wear orange if you decide to hike or bike on the Trail during these times. We don't want anyone to get hurt or to cause conflicts between Trail users and hunters.
