Blaze orange required for area not open to gun deer

3 posts in this topic

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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
