More information about our hunting lottery

As in years past, we will host archery deer hunting at Bluffside. For safety, all hunting will be archery-only because of the Newport City rule banning firearms. Hunting will be by permission only, and all rules will apply.

This year, archery deer hunting will be allowed during three periods:

  • October 15 to November 11
  • November 12 to November 27
  • November 28 to December 15

Safety and recreation at Bluffside Farm

Bluffside Farm is popular for walking and will continue to be open to the public during hunting season.

We require that all hunters carry written permission and hunt only in the designated portions of the property, away from neighboring houses.

Visitors should be mindful that hunters may be present during hunting periods and wear proper safety attire. We will also post reminders at Bluffside Farm.
