    I never gave it much thought but read that if you are walking to your stand to early or returning to car/trk to late that your suppose to have your bow in some type of case...as in sooner than 1/2 hour after sunrise or later than 1/2 hour after sundown.Anyone know of anyone being warned/told about this.Most of the time i'm in my stand an hour or more before it even peeks day light and if i'm hunting evenings i won't come down till it's pitch dark.

    i know the rules on that differ from state to state... there was a topic on here before about that subject and i think someone got a ticket or warning commin out of the woods late. im sure they will post and chime in.

    Couldn't find anything about this in the regs, but while reading I came across this. An adult doesn't have to have a drivers licence to operate an ATV off road but if your drivers license is suspended or revoked you can't legally operate an ATV.:noidea:

    I don't know about the state i live in but the 1st chance i get i'm going to check on it...if nothing else,just being curious.From what i understand there are states that have this.I guess it's no more nonsence than a state that doesn't allow hunting on Sundays.:noidea:

    In NY...a minor under the age of 17 can shoot a pistol at a range if the registered owner is present...over 21 you can't handle a pistol w/o a permit...18-20 you can't handle a pistol period...:frusty: :noidea:
