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
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.
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.
