Well, for sure it would be Dec. 10th. Dec. 9th is the end of the state wide muzzleloader season. If there isn't an open gun season where you are hunting you would be good before that.

You have to wear blaze starting this Saturday when muzzle opens and where it thru the end of muzzle which is Dec. 9th.

If you are bow hunting this week in 3B you will need your blaze.

If I understand the regs correctly, if there is any firearm season going on (rifle or ML) you are required to wear blaze orange.

Correct, if there is a gun or muzzle loader season going on in the area you are bow hunting you need to wear blaze orange.

What about a bowhunting in a city hunt? No rifles/muzzleloaders around............gray area?

No gray area shiner. If you are in a city hunt where there are no firearms allowed you do not need to wear blaze since you are not in an area open to firearms hunting.

I bowhunted in the city last weekend and again this weekend and blaze is not required

Thanks Powerstroke, I figured that was the case, but wasn't quite sure. Can't wait to get back in the stand in all camo!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
