In some places there are just as many and more archery camps before, during, and after muzzleloading season. Something to take into consideration.

    I should add... I'm assuming your talking about an OTC unit...
    With that being said, I would be bow hunting during the smoke pole season. I wish we had a muzzy season in September! That would be a lot of fun.

    CoHiCntry brings up a good point. Many OTC archery hunters will probably avoid hunting during the ML season thinking there will be more pressure but with the ML season being LE during it might be the least pressure of the whole archery hunt.

    I have a question for all you bow hunters. Colorado makes all gun hunters wear orange, while you guys wear camo. I am assuming the reasoning is gun hunters need to see each other to keep us from shooting each other (again LOL..LOL) If this is the rational...how come M/L hunters don't shoot camo wearing bow hunters?

    I hunted almost all my life in California where any dress is allowed during hunting season and I never saw a hunter shot due to another hunters fault...seen several who shot themselves due to their own stupidity!

    It just bugs me that we M/L hunters have to wear orange while hunting with bow hunters who wear camo. Doesn't really sound like it makes a lot of sense .

    Hi Country, In the future can you refrain from letting the cat out of the bag!

    I think it's kinda silly too. I sure wish they'd do away with the blaze requirement for muzzleloaders.

    I dont think orange should be required anywhere on any hunt. There should not be any seat belt laws anywhere either. Not that I am against either of them I just think it should be your decision to use them or not.

    Those are two completely different things! Orange is designed to keep all the idiots out there, and there are many, from making mistakes. In a perfect world where everyone was 100% sure of their target the color orange wouldn't be necessary. Seatbelt laws, on the other hand, are not only designed to protect you in an accident, but are also to keep insurance rates down. If a person didn't have one on and was severely injured, the medical costs are astronomical, especially if it requires lifelong care. Seatbelt laws cut that cost way down by preventing many major injuries or death every year.
