When hunting an archery only WMA in KY during the firearms season are you required to wear orange?

There were several in GA and during the firearms season you did not, however if you were on the same WMA hunting small game it was required.

You don't have to wear it on archery only wma's. Be advised people do sneak in and rifle hunt.
I would think this to be true around the fringes ,but wouldn't be to worried about the interior. In the 20 years or so I have hunted archery only WMAs have never encountered a gun hunter.

I have hunted primitive weapons areas and caught people using modern firearms. Trust me bud. People dont always follow the rules. An not all people are smart. Just saying. Better safe then sorry. If you cant kill a deer because of wearing orange chances are you aint gonna kill it anyway.

If you would like to complain after being shot during gun season, WEAR ORANGE.... If you have no intentions of complaining, wear whatever you want
Not complaining asking a simple question , IS IT REQUIRED ON AN ARCHERY ONLY WMA during the gun season , it is not in other states, trying to get some clarification. If you dont know then there is no reason to respond. Thank you.

Don’t think that’s correct. Gun season laws supersede archery laws during firearms season.
And that is exactly what I am trying to figure out is it required or recommend, not trying to be confrontational.. That's my other thread..lol

That is close but it doesn't adress an achery only wma where firearms are never allowed.

You asked:
“When hunting an archery only WMA in KY during the firearms season are you required to wear orange?”

Am I misunderstanding your question, because I’m not sure how the link I provided didn’t answer it?

Didn’t mean to get anyone upset. I was just elaborating my opinion on the point that superrman77 made. Logically, by hunting without it, you are assuming that everyone else who hunts there knows it’s archery only, knows it’s a no firearm zone and will abide by those rules. I personally do not have that much faith in the general public. Thirty years ago, maybe I would have but not today. If people will trespass on private property knowing someone is there hunting with a gun, I don’t believe they would stay out of a public zone where no one should be with a gun, especially considering how many CO’s there are. I’ve had deer within 5 yards while hunting on the ground that didn’t spook at my orange. The question should be CAC you hunt there without orange. The question should be, why would you? At least wear orange Camo that is broken up if you are afraid they will spook at the solid color. I would never encourage someone to do something that might get them hurt or killed.
