Hunting on State Parks land is prohibited. It is legal to carry an unloaded firearm on State Parks property in order to gain access to properties that do allow such activities as hunting. Weapons may not be discharged on State Parks lands. While hunters are traversing state parks, if they have dogs with them, hunters are reminded they must keep their dogs on an 8-foot leash and under control at all times.
