Orange and non-hunter
Question...I was on a Gameland today and an elderly gentleman asked me a question the answer of which I was unsure.
He was birdhunting and had a lady with him he introduced as his daughter. She was not hunting but did appear to be a budding photographer or videographer.
Anyway, he asked if I knew if she was required by statute to buy a hunting license...she lived out of state, as I understood it and was simply visiting for the weekend.
I guess the hunt today was a spur-of-the-moment deal.
I first said No but then advised asking the folks at the license sales point or on the PGC website...as I really do not know.
If she flushed a pointed bird for he and the dog(he ran a dual setter so I expect there were pointed pheasants), is she part of the hunt?...not sure, in that case but perhaps she would be.
I did comment that her wearing orange was wise and, likely, required as well....again, I was not sure.
What would be the skinny should the rare chance occur that I am asked much the same questions again by another or see the old fella again?
Additionally, nice day to hunt...pheasants were obliging, dogs were listening and smiles were the uniform of the day.
GBE was correct....decades ago.
Rory has a good owner now....lucky lad.
