It appears there is a new rule this year. I checked last year’s regs and it wasn’t there. If you are hunting in an area open to modern firearm deer or elk, you must wear hunter orange even when turkey hunting. I’ll be going on a fall turkey hunt that falls during this time. This will make hiding from the turkeys very interesting.

Any tips?

Wearing orange but sitting in a ground blind seems like it would help?
There is not enough wilderness left in the world, or in the hearts of men.

Orange camo is legal and might help.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Help with getting a bird? I agree it will help with safety.

Camo vs solid orange would possibly be less likely to spook a bird.

Oh. Sorry. I misread your reply. Orange camo instead of straight orange is a good idea. I just ordered an orange camo vest from Amazon. Thanks!

Yes. Turkeys can see color. That’s my concern with this change to the regs. Their eyesight is mostly based on movement but the orange makes it much easier for them to see you if you move even a little.

I mean, I understand the reason behind it. Nobody wants to get shot.
