    Do the food plots in 79,80, and 81 have anything on them now?

    We ended up having 10
    People hunting that we split between 2 areas. Worked out perfect. Love the new system. In the old system. We could not have done that. Hopefully they leave it this way. Great guides in both areas. Already looking forward to next year

    I don't know the legal end, but I'm going to go ahead and say yes for your own peace of mind

    There's nothing in the Archery Guidelines requiring orange. It would be three days only, Nov 10,11 and 12 if you are tier 3 and drawn for that weekend. I've hunted that weekend several years and don't wear it, I do carry it in my pack.

    If guns are used on the property you have to use orange.

    You can always call hunt control and they will tell you, but from my understanding of the Knox Regs:
    If your hunting during Knox archery season, no need for orange. If your using your bow during the regular Knox gun season (3 weekends) then yes but you have to have a deer gun permit. If your hunting an archery only area during the extended gun hunt, then no.

    No, you don't. Nor do you have to do so on any state run WMA if there is no gun hunting on the WMA at that time.

    No you do not. You only have to wear orange on post when it is firearm season on post. Or if you are in an area for gun hunting.
