    Of coarse they will! Archery hunters are the privileged elite. Bunny poppers are Uncle Jed.

    You will because fall muzzle loader starts Saturday. Full orange when moving to and from your stand, and an orange band marking your stand.

    So this is the "overlap" I have heard about? And that's just for a week. Then again, from the 30-1 (in 5B) you have to have a hat because it is fall turkey?

    Just one week Sat to Sat.

    Then the turkey overlap, as you stated.

    There may also be a bear overlap in your area.

    I am getting it slowly, thanks for the help!

    Also there is rifle season for the 2 weeks and extended firearms in countries near me that I may hunt in so then i would have to wear orange as well I would assume even if hunting bow.

    What about after Christmas flintlock?

    No orange required, unless there may be some extended firearm deer season in your area. I'm just throwing that out there because I don't know all the seasons down that way. But generally no orange is required during flintlock or winter archery.

    I sometimes wear an orange hat when leaving my stand during flintlock. Depends where I'm hunting. Just for safety.
