Just a gentle reminder...

Hunting any wild animal (except waterfowl) from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset during the youth deer gun season, deer gun season, the deer muzzleloader season is unlawful unless the hunter is visibly wearing a vest, coat, jacket, or coveralls that are either solid hunter orange or camouflage hunter orange. This requirement applies statewide on both public and private land.

The youngsters shot the 45-70 today we are ready! They both have a stand or blind picked out for their hunt on Saturday.

Yes, many bowhunters will have on their orange vests this weekend. Then they will climb up their stand and put them in their packs hahahahahaha

It's sad that we have to go through this every year. Not wearing orange during a gun season is a huge pet peeve of mine. It is a violation of wildlife regulations and that makes you a poacher! Someone is going to end up dead eventually over their stupid pride.

Wear orange to protect yourself. Leave that mask at home, forget that vaccination. More hunters with Covid-19 means more deer in my freezer! Thanks for making it possible for my best season ever! Please get out there real close and spread the love.

If you’re in the hospital, can I borrow that deer stand? If you don’t survive, can I keep it?

Seriously, why wear hunter orange if statistics show you are more likely to die by not protecting yourself from a deadly virus? Be safe in all ways... I really don’t want your deer stand!

You are more likely to die driving to or from your hunt than you are of being killed hunting without wearing hunter orange clothing when required. We both could go on and on, so let's agree on what we do know:

Legal hunters wear hunter orange because it was put into Ohio's hunting regulations (page 6, et al, in this year's pub) by the authority of our elected representatives way back in the day, well before common sense was completely lost on so many in the general public. In fact, if you'll excuse my digression, an Ohioan is attributed to getting us on board to wear it by regulation, and now a fishing hole is named after him: Lake (Hob) McKarns in Williams County.

Could you please show all of your readers the statistics to which you refer? The numbers I found indicate that heart disease and cancer were the two most deadly causes of death last year, whether you were hunting or not. And, before you throw WuFlu at us as the third leading cause of death, take note of the publisher's caveat wherein that specific number includes causes that were either: "...confirmed or presumed." [My emphasis]

To all: Have a safe and fun season. Take a kid with you.

Someone better than me said: I'll take you out when you're too young if you promise to take me out when I'm too old.

No problem-o on this end. The typical CCP phisher will take my response, spend the next several hours trying to interpret it, and then turn it in to someone up the chain for analysis and hopefully a payment. In the meantime, I've posted for our readers some facts germane to the topic of hunter orange, plus got a shout-out about one of our past celebrities from Williams County.

Aside: I do appreciate this site very much, in general, and this forum, specifically, and its monitors. Some very similar-looking sites, even some mostly frequented by those in liberated portions of Ohio, don't allow much debate at all, particularly on the topics once known as either the Big Five in an officers' mess or the Big Three in a ship's wardroom. A joke as mild as that below would likely band me on those sites having touched one or more of the forbidden topics.

How dull civil discourse can be. Keep up the good work on this site.

That said,
I'm thinking of re-nicknaming SWMBO and start calling her Bambi, not so much that she is still cute with big, brown eyes, but simply in hopes that someone will come along and shoot her mother with a hunting rifle.

And NO Amish are not exempt from this rule!
Seen them sneaking through our woods twice, I guess it’s easier to trespass and drive your deer out of your property because they killed all of theirs off, sad but true it happened twice couldn’t catch them, they also have been known to turn stray dogs off onto our property, I want to see the Game Wardens start focusing on the Amish in Knox County as they think they don’t have to abide by the rules, especially the 1 buck per year rule, papa Amish shoots more than his share and tags them in the kids or relatives names on landowners, on our 150 used to be prime land I did not see 1 single buck all gun season, the neighbors told me the Amish neighbors have been wiping them out, for 30 years I have practiced good QDM just to watch them all disappear in 3 years that they have massacred way too many bucks. Very depressing as our neighbors are on the verge of war to get back what they have destroyed so quickly.

Absolutely, makes no sense at all not to wear hunter’s orange your family might need you alive to make it home, ignorance has no place in a woods where ethical safe hunter’s exist period!!!!!!!!!

You a lucky one
I have 150 acres 3 years ago I would see some nice bucks, our neighbors and myself managed our herd for quantity of quality, did not take long to see a major decline in buck numbers especially the following year after they moved into our neighborhood, not one single buck was seen this year during the gun seasons, please take all the Amish you want, might prevent our neighborhood war that is coming.

Hard to believe you have 150 acres and no bucks on it. I have 115 and am still seeing bucks on my trail camera, even with hunting on my farm and all around it. You may need better habitat, i.e., better cover for deer to hide in. I manage my farm for wildlife, specifically rabbits and quail, and I can hardly take a step in the brushy fields without stepping in deer manure. We have tons of deer in this part of the state. Lots of leasing here only makes for more deer, as many only hunt bucks and not does.
