Blaze orange required for area not open to gun deer

Recommended Posts

Can anyone confirm this. In the regulation prior to this yr, it state that if you are bowhunting in an area that it close to deer hunting with a gun that blaze orange was not required. I was out bowhunting in such a area today and the co told me I needed to have blaze orange. We exchange a few opinions and then he allowed me to proceed to hunt today but next time for me to wear blaze. Unless that was changed this yr, before that it was not required.

Do it for your own peace of mind! Look back to the stroy of the bowhunter tht got shot earlier this year by a squirrel hunter. Dude, don't tempt fate! Put your orange on and hunt like the rest of us. I'd much rather see no deer because they saw me then see a ton of deer and get shot because somone thought I was a squirrel or a deer. Not worth the risk in my book! My .02.

Yes, it is still required. I've hunted many years on a state refuge where gun hunting is not allowed by law, only bow hunting. I have in the past seen and also heard other reports of gun hunters who just don't care and hunt the refuge land anyway.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
