Need some clarification, what are they rules on Hunters Orange at Lake Grapevine? It says on their website you must wear at least 400 square inches but then it also has: Hunters exempt from this requirement are... persons hunting deer/turkey/feral hog/waterfowl and migratory birds. So which is it? I see people out there with hunters orange and a handful without

I read it to mean if you're bow hunting for deer/hogs or bird hunting, hunter orange isn't required but is recommended. If you're small game hunting (squirrel, rabbit, etc) with a shotgun (no larger than #2), hunter orange is required.

I would personally wear hunter orange to and from stand. Orange headwear might not be a bad idea even in stand. I've had squirrel hunters walk right under me several times. Lots of target shooters out there even though it's technically not allowed. I've had guys with center fire rifles walk by me, as well. Again...not legal. The locals have the run of the place in some areas. Horseback, atv, Ford Bronco, feeders and hand corn, permanent tree stands...the list goes on and on.

Deer season for those lucky enough to get drawn but can't check the regs is Oct 26.
