I thought I read no orange required during bow season? Anybody read up on it? If it isnt required do you still wear it? I have heard of people having arrows flung in their direction so safer than sorrier?

If I were to take my son out there, he can get a disability permit, but I thought it was legal now? Must not have read enough into it?

After further review...the Ref's call stands!

I wear orange walking in and out but take it off when I get up the tree.

Well.... seeings how I hunt fairly in the open, when I do go to Blackwater, I will be oranged in and out. Side note, I cant believe how many deer are in Blackwater. I cant remember not sitting and seeing atleast a deer. Once you know what to look for, they are everywhere..... but... sticking one may take more time than I have put into it. But not gonna keep me from trying. Thanks for the official review Espo. Good luck fellas

Espo had it right, and I would suggest that you wear orange whenever you are afoot, and until you are UP in your stand.
I know it sounds crazy, but there are some real idiots out there, especially on WMA's.
I don't want getting stuck with a broad head.

If your hunting near a lot of people during archery you don't know.....u probably will not be to successful........
Didnt realize there were places not within shouting distance of others?? I had many does and a few small bucks walk right up to me in riffle season. Assuming bow was the same. Doesnt matter, just glad to be in a tree
