2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

I just read the regs again and as far as I can tell I am not required to wear any orange while hunting with a flinter right ? Although it still may be a good idea as I hate getting shot.

I read it too. And I can't find it. But.....I would wear at least a FO hat. I was bow hunting on Tuesday behind my house (2B) and wore a FO hat and vest. Yeah.....FO vs getting shot? FO wins hands down.

Re: 2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

in 2b i believe you have to wear 250 of FO because rifle and shotgun are still in depending on where you are at.

Kids!!! Get your camo on. We are going to Cabelas!!

No FO required statewide while participating in late archery or flintlock. Probably a good idea in the SRA but you are not required to wear it.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: 2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

But you know Dude......I hunt (and will be hunting) in parts of 2B in the next week or so, with a 44 magnum handgun, and my 45-70 Marlin.

Now, I'm well aware of my targets and the background before I shoot, as there are places where you just don't take the shot because 600 or 700 yards away there is a house. The 44 mag. and the 45-70 are not long range guns.....but ANY bullet with the right trajectory can travel that long and will have sufficient energy to kill or severely injure a person.

However, the point of my rambling is, when the time and place comes where I do take the shot.....I sure do like to know if 200 or 300 yards....or even longer...if there is a hunter back there. And if he's not wearing FO, and all in camo....I sure as heck have much less of a chance of picking him\her out.

Hey.....even if they are trespassers I don't want to whack 'em with a 405gr. lead bullet from my Marlin. I'd rather just ask 'em to leave.

Any way....if your in "highpower land" wear your FO. No deer is worth it.

Re: 2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

i will be hunting in the beaver county portion of 2b next week. i may take my .44 mag marlin and do some still hunting if we get some soft snow.

something about me carrying a high-powered rifle and being allowed to wear no orange that doesnt seem right. i'll be wearing my orange.

thanks dave!

Re: 2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

I believe the 'no FO' only applies if you have a flintlock or bow of either kind in your hands. If you have a rifle or pistol or an inline, you have to have FO.

I hunt the lines, and I don't feel safe with a flinter, even on the border, where guys could be 200 yards away with rifles -- flintlock is all screwed up in the SRA's.

Re: 2b Flintlock Flo orange ?

I was always under the impression that if hunting in a SRA you had to where the required amount of blaze orange weather you are huntin' with a flinter, bow or rifle

Friends don't let friends buy inlines
