No, it's not true.
I would only advise not riding there Nov 15-20th, as this is when firearm deer season is at its peak. Being mistaken for a deer isn't the concern....it's the idea of being in the line of fire that I would be concerned with.
Small Game season is open now. Bow season opens on Oct first. Riding in the middle of the day is smart.
I ride Yankee very often. I also have a treestand that is within eyesight of the trail. It's pretty cool watching riders negotiate the trail...but it's also entertaining ...I've heard a number of riders "coaching" themselves ..."come on!"...."that line didn't work!"...."WHOA...almost crashed!".
