There is a new hunter orange requirement coming into effect in August of 2011. All hunters under the age of 17 will need to wear an exterior garment of hunter orange color when hunting any mammal or upland game bird (with the exception of turkey) which offers visibility from all sides (360 degrees). This garment can be a hat, shirt, jacket, coat, vest or sweater. Orange camouflage is an acceptable pattern. Hunters 17 and over are strongly encouraged to wear hunter orange as well.
