Special Regulations Flouresant Orange?

In the Special Regulation Areas what are the orange requirements from Dec 26-Jan 9 archery? The reason I am asking is because I was in debate with a buddy of mine about whether or not it was required to wear orange if you were to substitute your bow for your gun during the Dec 26-Jan 23 firearms season, which is legal. He called the game commission about the Dec 26-Jan 23 season and they said it was required to wear orange for archery because it was during a firearms season. So does this mean that during that Dec 26-Jan 9 that I have to wear orange? Or does it mean that after the late archery season is when I have to wear orange? It just seems odd because you are allowed to use flintlock during that Dec 26- Jan 23 season and it says nothing about wearing orange...I just feel it should be made more apparent in the handbook and that hunters should be made more aware of these rules and regulations for SRA.

Re: Special Regulations Flouresant Orange?

If you can hunt deer with a "Firearm" its required.

Re: Special Regulations Flouresant Orange?

when they print that in the book, I will go by it. I'm going strictly by what's typed in the game book. it says there's no ornage requirement for the after christmas archery and flintlock. nowhere does it say anything about having to wear orange in the SRA.

Re: Special Regulations Flouresant Orange?

You hunt private ground,you can get away with that attitude,
However down here in 2B/Allegheny county you better wear it at the gamelands or Gary Fujack/Jack Candek and the others will site you...

I'm not trying to argue, <u> I'm a Marine,and it's hard to convince yourself it is safe wearing a brite orange vest, instead of camo head to toe</u>

Im surprized John S/Randy hasn't put in their two cents yet...

Re: Special Regulations Flouresant Orange?

The season after muzzleloader and late archery closes is an extended firearm season, not matter if you use a shotgun, front loader or bow and the proper amount of safety material must be worn.
