    Nope, you can also hunt in the bush with hunter orange on, or behind a fence with hunter orange, etc.

    I wear orange while hunting in a group for small game but for solo hunts it is no different than turkey hunting (bear hunting is on then too) and hunting waterfowl, yes you can walk to hunt waterfowl too.

    There is a risk yes, but there was a guy killed in his decoys by a guy shooting from the road at his goose decoys with a rifle from his truck so you are not going to remove all risk and I know that I am still more likely to die in my vehicle going to and from my hunting spot than hunting, with or without hunter orange.
    Any time of the season. You wear orange when you are in a group but not when your by yourself. Thing is possibly you are not by yourself in the woods. In a group at least you know for sure who is around so if orange is good than the possibility of someone else hunting should motivate you to wear orange also. Help a fellow hunter out and wear orange ,small game doesn't see colour.
    Always about making safer choices.

    I don't wear orange to walk a dog, I don't wear orange to go for a jog, I don't wear orange to walk down the road.

    I see nothing different than doing any of these other things.

    It is called managing risks, I do not feel as though I am in an area where there is much of a chance of there being another hunter in the area I hunt, mind you I hunt small game and there does not seem to be any other people ever out there when I am hunting.

    Well if that works for you great. Like I said at least once a season I run into an upland camo hunter while upland hunting and although I consider myself a safe hunter I would feel bad if I pepper someone because they prefer to look like a tree than a pumpkin.

    Oh yea, they will pick you out in a heartbeat ! Even in snow camo, they pick us out….I think if anything, it’s the least amount of movement they see…

    The required orange-colored clothing must be visible from all directions. You can wear a backpack or fanny pack over orange clothing. Still, if the backpack or fanny pack completely covers the orange clothing and is not visible from one side, then the wearer should add some orange to the backpack cover (or use a smaller bag that does not completely cover the orange clothing). backpacks are a good example. Here you can find orange-colored backpacks outside and inside or in a backpack cover. Though I think it also depends on where you hunt.

    Definitely the movement. Mrs.T got me a new orange camo parka last Christmas for hunting with the crew. Works like a charm.
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

    I modified a hunter orange youth vest to work as a flap on my bag and can expose it when needed. It tucks away nicely if I have to stash my bag and don't want it to be seen or if I just don't want to sit beside an orange bag. I wear my regular camo hunting gear with an orange vest and hat when required.
