    Hunter Orange

    Good morning neighbors, this is a stupid question as the regs are straight forward, but as long as there is NOT a rifle season within my muzzleloader bull season (Box Elder, Grouse Creek unit), I do not have to have hunter orange......correct???

    Depends on the state. The hunter orange policy for any state is easy to find. it is almost always in the hunting booklet and if not, typing it in the search window of the F&G site will get it. If it's not clear, just call the G&F and they'll tell you.

    I believe you are correct. Isnt the reg something like you only have to wear it in a rifle season? Its been a few years since I have ML hunted Utah but I dont remember wearing orange there.

    Here is a link for all the states for hunter orange and hunter safety classes. Utah does not require hunter orange for ML hunters unless there is a rifle season during that time!

    TG, he is asking about Utah. The reg is not worded very clearly but I take it to mean you only have to wear orange if there is an open center fire season on the unit. Here is the link to the UT reg book.

    Thanks, I was sure I was interpretting the regs right but for some reason was second guessing myself. Thanks for clearing it up, do not need the hunter orange unless there is a rifle season. Which in my case, there is not.......sweet! More Utah questions to come I'm sure.

    You are correct. You don't need to wear hunter orange during the muzzleloader hunt (unless there is an open rifle hunt).

    I've changed my mind about hunter orange. I am not so sure that deer can't see it. Even if the can, now I don't care. I do know other hunters can see it, and it's easily seen from the air. When I'm in an area where big game is killed, I'm wearing it.

    For some reason I actually analyzed what a 130 grain .270 Win did to a buck. No human could survive such a wound. Were a hunter an hour from hospital and were shot in a non-vital area by a big game rifle, he'll likely arrive at an emergency room in time for physicians to harvest his organs.

    I would much rather be seen by other hunters than be tagged by any big game rifle.
