Bowhunters

Heard this weekend since it's youth season we have to wear all regulation orange if we're bowhunting, is this true? I didn't think we would have to unless you were participating in the youth hunt. I couldn't see why because you can bowhunt during late season and not wear orange. Anybody know if we have to or not?

If you are bowhunting during any firearm season you have to wear blaze orange. I believe.

page 14 of the hunting digest covers it, but in a nut shell....

anyone hunting in a county open to firearm hunting (other than waterfowl hunters) during any gun season (youth, firearm, muzzleloader, etc) must wear the blaze orange hat and vest. applies to trappers also.
