Hunting Season Is Here - Cape Elizabeth Land Trust


Hunting Season Is Here

Update: The CELT Board adopted a provisional hunting policy in October to allow bowhunting at the Pollack Brook Preserve for one hunting season, after which we will assess the policy’s success and craft a long-term hunting policy for the property. This area is now open for bowhunting with permission from CELT’s Stewardship Manager.

Please be aware that Hunting Season began on September 7th and will continue until December 14th this year. CELT allows hunting in Robinson Woods I (north of Belfield Road), and our new addition at Robinson Woods III, but not in the middle section, Robinson Woods II. Hunting is also permitted in the Pollack Brook Preserve. Due to town firearm ordinances, only bow hunting is permitted in Cape Elizabeth.

Please contact Stewardship Manager Chris Schorn for permission before you hunt. You can call our office at (207) 767-6054, or email him at We like to know how many people are out there, and want to be able to answer questions and communicate all relevant and important information about hunting on our conserved lands.

For both trail users and hunters, please consider wearing blaze orange or other high-visibility gear during hunting season! Hunting accidents happen every year – stay visible, stay safe, and be respectful to everyone you encounter on the trails.

For detailed maps or any other questions, please contact the CELT office.
