Moraine Hills S/P to close for deer hunting

Moraine Hills State Park, located near Island Lake off River Road north of Route 176, will be closed on two week-ends for deer hunting season. If I recall the dates on the sign at the entrance, the Park will be closed this coming week-end (Nov. 20-22 (or Nov. 21-23)) and the first week-end in December.

If you are a deer hunter, you probably already know the dates.

If you are a hiker, beware! You surely wouldn’t want to be dropped off along River Road away from the entrance, where you would miss the closure signs and perhaps even avoid a ranger who would caution you about entering during hunting season.

Does anyone know whether the Park is closed to the non-hunting public during deer-hunting season?
