    The animals always know.

    The number of times I have seen huge bucks when it was not hunting season.
    The number of deer when goose hunting.
    The number of ducks when deer hunting.
    It makes you sick sometimes, but they always know.
    It's freaky isn't it. I see deer when turkey, duck, moose and coyote hunting, turkey when deer and coyote hunting. Geese by the hundreds stacked up in fields that are in the no discharge zone. Makes you crazy doesn't it?

    Animals can read.

    That is where all the regulations books end up, the MNRF did not reduce the numbers, they just handed more out to the deer this fall.

    Ain't that a fact! No adult Moose tags in our area,this year and we saw more than in other five years,combined. I swore that Cow thst stood and watched me for ten minutes,not 75' away,was snickering. LOL

Does not mean you, you will not get a ticket from CO, but the regs are clear and refers to Migratory Act (under feds) no provincal restriction in F&WGA.
    Like Werner....I accept your challenge .....Sec. 19 FWCA
    Hunt with shotgun not permanently plugged

    Set Fine: $100.00

    Total Payable: $125.00

    A person shall not hunt with a shotgun unless the shotgun has been permanently plugged or altered so that it cannot hold a total of more than three shells at one time in the chamber and magazine.

    Interesting the use of "permanently" there, but that's another can of worms entirely.

    I've been down to the grand opening of Bass Pro in Niagara over the weekend & was reminded that wearing camo is not just about marketing or being convinced you need it ... it's also a marker of identity that declares "I hunt." Much more so than the Mackinaw coat, and you can wear your camo jacket or ball cap in public without being committed to an asylum, unlike your waders or your upland vest. This is one reason camo is so popular.

    Camo not required while in a tree stand for black bear. Bears have a wider spectrum of vision than most animals if I remember correctly.

    Just wondering what you all thought. Feel free to put me in my place if I am thinking about this the wrong way
    Easy!
    Frist, I use my big game hunting clothe for turkey, waterfowl, yotes and so on so it better be camo or brown.
    Secondly, if you want some good quality hunting clothes there is a good chance they are going to be camo, or brown but that's a bag idea while deer hunting.

    Most (almost all) of the decent quality clothing is camo. Even the stuff that is reversible orange, the reversible side does not put up with much wear and tear. I've ruined one reversible orange jacket by wearing it in the brush until it was shredded. I got a better one and after a couple of seasons, I could see where that was going. I now wear it camo side out and put an orange vest on over it.

    If you buy camo for deer/moose, you can also use it for bow, turkey, waterfowl, etc - just ditch the orange vest.

    Werner is bang on. Same thing I do. Camo clothes with a good orange vest when required
