While the Aspetuck Land Trust does not allow hunting on its property, you may hunt on the state-owned portion of Trout Brook Valley Conservation Area in Easton. It is open for turkey hunting in the spring and deer hunting in the fall. Check on specific requirements.
You may hunt on private property. All hunters are required to have permission from the landowner when hunting on private lands. Verbal permission for the hunting of animals other than deer and turkey is sufficient.
Deer and turkey hunters must carry the written permission of the landowner for the current season on official DEEP forms. A landowner must have a minimum of 10 acres to authorize the use of a rifle for deer hunting.
For further information on game law issues, bowhunting, or conservation, refer to the latest issue of the state Hunting and Trapping Guide, available at the town clerk’s office or online at deep.state.ct.us.
