Hunter Orange Exceptions Clarified
This year MUCC supported House Bill 4897 (Sheltrown, D-West Branch), which was also signed by the Governor into law. The law took immediate effect and made various changes to hunter orange requirements for the 2009 hunting season that are consistent with Michigan’s new crossbow regulations. The law also makes exceptions for falconers and stationary bobcat, coyote, or fox hunters, which MUCC supported through a 2007 resolution. Language that would have required hunter orange for ground blinds was stricken from the bill.
