PFD'S while in UNPOWER boats & kayaks

I believe this may be a dumb question , but was the law changed about wearing you PFD while in a canoe or kayak on the water ? Don't you have to wear the ALL of the time while on the water ?

I am pretty sure that under 12 years old they must be worn at all times. other then that, they just have to be in reach.

12 and under unless during the cold water months then they have to be worn at all times.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Here is the official link. 12 and under must wear them in canoes, kayaks, and all boats under 20 feet while underway. That means kids must wear them until they turn 13.
