    White Clay on a weekday during archery season?

    I know there's no hunting on Sundays, but I'd like to go on a Fri, unfortunately after archery season opens. Does anyone ride at White Clay during hunting seasons, recommend for/against?

    Here is some info for you for riding during the fall hunting season.

    Is that time of year again......

    So, as an FYI, the following are the dates for Deer hunting in DE State Parks (2014-2015):

    Archery (includes crossbow)*: September 1st thru January 31st
    * If you haven't already started to, please wear brightly colored clothing to
    make sure you are seen.

    Muzzleloader: October 10th thru October 18th
    January 26th thru January 31st

    Shotgun**: November 14th thru November 22nd
    December 13th thru December 20th
    January 17th thru 24th.
    **Specific trails in the active hunting areas will be marked CLOSED

    Handgun**: January 3rd thru January 10th
    **Specific trails in the active hunting areas will be marked CLOSED

    Please be respectful to hunters as this is the time of year for them to enjoy their hobbies.

    Archery in White Clay opens up Oct. 13th this year.

    That was what a hunter in one of the parking lots told me anyway. He had a whole binder full of information, stand locations, and open season dates.

    Trails are open during archery season, so feel free to ride. As a courtesy, I generally try to ride during full daylight, not dawn or dusk which are prime hunting times. According to my hunting friends, an occasional rider during full daylight might actually encourage deer to move (hopefully near a tree stand), otherwise they're bedded down.

    Also note that hunting is only in White Clay, not the adjacent Middle Run area.
