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.

My bad ...the book does state that gun season is still in for the SRA...but no FO requirement...I would wear it anyway
Darn! I was just about to turn in a few 100 poachers and retire on the reward!
No really, thanks for the help.

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.
