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!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
