One of the Town owned areas where hunting is allowed, only with a permit issued by the Ipswich Police, is around the reservoirs where there are public trails. These trails are open for use during hunting season, so trail users and hunters need to be cautious and aware of each other’s presence. Deer hunting season (including archery, shotgun, and primitive firearms) runs from: October 7, 2019 to December 31, 2019
Use these safety tips on the trails during hunting season:
In an emergency, call the Ipswich Police at 911. For hunting questions, concerns, or to report violations call the Massachusetts Environmental Police, 800-632-8075. Additional information about hunting in Massachusetts can be found online:
