It's on the back of the 2009 Fall Deer and Turkey book. You dont have to wear it when bowhunting though.

Page 6 of the Fall Deer and Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information booklet

It says "firearms deer hunters during all portions of the firearms deer season"

Muzzleloader season is part of the firearms season. :cheers:

CSR Division 10, Chapter 7.431 paragraph 7)

Which reads:

(7) During the firearms deer hunting season
and during managed firearms deer hunts on
those areas where such hunts are held, all
persons hunting any game and also adult
mentors accompanying them, must wear a
cap or hat and a shirt, vest, or coat of the
color commonly known as hunter orange,
which must be plainly visible from all sides.
Camouflage orange garments do not meet this
requirement. The following are exempt from
this requirement:
(A) Migratory game bird hunters;
(B) Archery permittees during the muzzleloader
portion;
(C) All hunters in counties closed during
the urban counties and antlerless portions;
(D) Hunters using archery methods while
hunting within municipal boundaries where
discharge of firearms is prohibited;
(E) Hunters on federal or state public hunting
areas and during managed hunts where
deer hunting is restricted to archery or crossbow
methods; and
(F) Hunters of small game and/or furbearers
during the muzzleloader portion.

You use as firearms tag so I would say it is firearms season. It isn't something I would want to figth so I would just wear it. Also who wants to say you had a dad but he didn't wear orange and someone thought he was a deer. Better safe than sorry. :02:

I teach hunter safety, I have to tell you, as much as I love bowhunting, any person hunting any game during any portion of firearm seasons should be wearing orange. If I have a muzzleloader I have to wear it but if I have a bow I don't? Last I checked, a bow doesn't double as kevlar.

If someone is allowed in the woods with me using a firearm, we all should have orange on.

I'd be wearing orange about every day if that was the case jack. Always someone plinking with a pistol or shooting shotguns or rifles where I hunt. :wave:

How is a 30-30 in November any more dangerous than an inline in December? :whistle:

Pretty silly rule IMHO

Most hunting accidents are not a result of wearing or not wearing orange.

They occur most often, while loading/unloading a weapon or handing a loaded weapon to someone
