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.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
