Do you guys wear orange

Recommended Posts

I do not. But I also hunt private land.  If I was hunting public during the youth weekend I def would, or if bow hunting during gun or muzzleloader season.

I do. I am usually hunting with another person. Plus during gun you just never know who is walking around.  We haven't had any trespassing problems but we do hunt along property lines esp when going in and out of the woods.

Suffolk County requires hunters to wear 6" × 6" min. orange while bowhunting on County properties. I have never seen anyone follow that rule.

If I am not bowhunting, I wear orange, but I hunt public land.

Yes during crossbow, and rifle.  Bow, I do not.

Usually just an orange hat.  99% of time its my private land. If on public during gun, I wear an orange vest.

Bird hunting yes.

Deer hunting when moving I wear a orange camo hat.

In my blind no but I have orange on my blind. 
 

Years ago when the Catskills was a war zone on opening day I glowed with orange to to bottom.

Always at least an orange hat but sometimes more depending on the hunt itself and where and what I am hunting. I am a believer in blaze orange as a simple precaution and the best I can tell it never caused me to unsuccessful because I had some on.

During Southern zone gun season.  Northern zone I either do or don't, I don't put much thought into it because we see so few people.  Bow season I don't.  I only hunt my place and the home farm.

Bow only season, I like to display orange on the walk in and out times. Never know who might be out there waiting to release an arrow, legally or not. All it takes is once.

same.

and to be clear, even on private land I still put an orange hat on walking in and out, and a vest if I'm tracking.

I wear a camo hat when walking between spots in the Northern zone, during ML and rifle season.  I switch to a camo hat upon reaching my spots, and hang the orange hat on a branch above.

I go with all camo, never any orange, during crossbow season.
