If you weren't carrying a weapon, how does he know you weren't hiking?

I know that the use of hunter is encouraged and recomended, even for hikers. However, it isn't required when your scouting/hiking.
To be honest, rules on ALL WMA forest land.
Notice:*to archery hunters and recreational users: You must wear hunter orange during daylight hours at any time when firearm hunting for any species is authorized on the unit. Squirrel season open and even if hiking orange must be worn

In your situation, I believe you were legal. I don't believe you had to have it on, I'm glad you didn't get a ticket.
Wrong guys squirrel season going on so all on WMA land must have orange on hunting or not

This is straight from the book:
For all WMA, it is required
national forest and grassland are different. Thus the separate paragraph at end of that post.
