Once you’ve planned your next hunt, make sure you are researching the area to greater your chances of a successful hunt. Search from topographic maps or ask other hunters about their experience.

The purpose of the hunter orange regulation is to make sure you are safe while hunting. Under this regulation, all licensed hunters, or archery hunters hunting during the gun season must wear orange hunting gear.
Hunters must also wear an orange headcover and have an orange garment covering a minimum of 400 square inches above the waist and are visible from all sides. Make sure that your head covering does not contain any camouflage material!
