With all the changes in the reg.s , some confusion has come about on this…HELP!

If I’m hunting during the flintlock season and I’m in a management area where others are still hunting with a rifle, do I have any orange requirements?

I know that I do need it during the inline season while I’m bow hunting.

Darn! I was just about to turn in a few 100 poachers and retire on the reward!
No really, thanks for the help.

You can use a rifle for doe only in all parts of 2B except for Allegheny county

I was rabbit hunting Saturday and a guy walked by in all camo heading deeper into the woods. I thought he was pretty risky as he had to hear the dogs running and he parked right beside my truck.

The orange laws are foolish. Imagine it's Oct - I could jump in my friend's truck, drive to the hunting location with him, we depart from the truck, he's hunting with an inline m/l, I'm bow hunting. I can do the orange strap once in my stand (orange hat/vest moving), he has to wear the orange at all times. Now....who's more capable of being shot in mistake of game or in the line of fire....the guy shooting a bow or a guy shooting a m/l? Not to even mention the lady I saw walking on state forest ground the first week of rifle deer season, wearing a brown coat!!

Don't rely on seeing flo orange to know it's a human, you must positively identify your target and what is beyond at all times.
