    Especially at this time from all the senior officers retiring,they're stretched ridiculously thin. The saving grace is that there's more OPP officers who hunt and fish and are really stepping up,but,they can't do it all,either. Something needs to change.

    If you hunt in 16c you will be checked most every day by the C O's . They even stopped at our camp site twice after 10 p m .

    People seem a bit idealistic about CO's and police. In some cases they are not correct. When it comes to firearms laws especially many police just don't know the laws or choose to interpret it with personal bias.
    Use your heads and wear blaze. It can save your life or you from making a tragic mistake.

    Just bought a $180 strap vest, with some hunter orange on it.

    As soon as I seen the article, I panicked, put on a hunter orange vest, then my strap vest. I then tried to pull the front halves over the black straps to cover them up with orange......kinda worked.

    So now I know better, and what a CO will let go, or better, accept. Otherwise a strap vests would be illegal to wear. Also, does it have to be a vest? How about a hunter orange jacket, or pullover??

    This artical was probably just filler, gave very little information, and just caused confusion.

    My two cents.

    Strap vests are great but none meet minimum blaze legislation. I wear additional blaze garments with mine. You only need to comply with blaze requirements if hunting in a zone with an open firearms season for big game at the time though. Doesn't matter if you are bird hunting or big game hunting. If the season is on you need to comply with blaze regulations.

    I was going to say, no one in the camps around here wear 'vests' at all....everyone wears Blaze Jackets or Coveralls. My wife made me a Hoodie out of Blaze fleece that gets worn more than anything else.

    I like a jacket but the wife is just getting into hunting and womens clothing is a pain to find and no mens clothes actually fit women properly so an orange vest for over her womens cut camo coat is all we can do on our budget and it is 100% legal.

    How can you say it does not meet the requirements? Have you measured them? I bet on a 200lb guy most of the strap vests with the entire lower section in blaze orange would meet the requirements for 400 sq inches.

    That being said, you only need blaze orange to be legal when there is an open gun season for deer, moose or elk, upland game hunting and small game hunting has no orange requirement legally speaking unless there is a big game gun season open.
