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.

Re: Orange and non-hunter

As long as she is just following along and not participating in the hunt she doesn't need a license, however if she would participate such as flushing the bird for the licensed hunter then indeed she would need a license. To further complicate: An adult who never held a license in any state may accompany a license hunter so long as they do not carry a weapon and wear the required amount of flourescent orange and participate in things such as flushing game, they are considered to me a member of the hunting party if there is a party limit they would be included. Once that person buys a license, they no longer qualify.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Ok...after I said it and saw his pointing dog I thought my No might be wrong.
I was pretty sure on the orange deal...just makes sense.

What party limit is involved along with flushing game...doves?
Thanks, by the way.

There is a party limit of 6 for small game, which actually does not pertain to situations where people are stationary as in dove hunting.

Re: Orange and non-hunter

6, meaning the people in the party?
In the past, was that ever 5?
Forgetting is coming easier these days.

Yep, it used to be 5 in a party for small game.
