Maybe you know the answer

I asked this question on another thread that was on a different topic. No answer. So I will make it the topic and ask again.
Is it legal to remove your orange while gutting your deer?

I'm thinking you leave your orange on until your out of the woods. Wouldn't want to get shot while gutting a deer or dragging one for that matter.

Not really. Why would you want to?

I wear my orange vest over my coat. When I get a deer I lean my gun against the nearest tree, remove my orange vest, hang it on the barrel of my rifle, remove my coat and put the vest back on over my sweat shirt or vest. I then gut the deer, put my coat in my back pack, which has an orange panel on it, and drag the deer out without having my heavy coat on.


The point is you want to keep your required orange displayed at all times to be safe. I know of a case where a hunter was shot in mistake for a deer after he removed his orange to gut his deer. Though I remove mine from my coat long enough to put it back on over my shirt it is highly visible hanging on my rifle barrel for the short period of time it takes to make that transfer.

I don't know if it's legal or not, but I certainly wouldn't want to be next to a target species in season without it on. I've heard of instances out west where hunters have been shot while carrying out a set of antlers strapped to a backpack.

Ok if you require a simple yes or no answer, the answer is NO it is not legal to remove your orange to gut a deer.

It was not an inconvenience, I just thought I had answered it already. I guess some of the other posts I have been dealing with have left me a little testy. Sorry!
