Pay attention to the hunting regulations in July

When the Maryland 2017-2018 hunting regulations will be available in July, get a copy! Pay particular attention to the florescent Orange requirements.

Landowners will no longer be exempt from wearing florescent orange. That also means the usage of florescent orange to mark ground blinds.

So the trespassers and poachers can see you coming.

So the apprentice hunters do not plug you.

Really, and truly. If you are not hunting, you do not have a requirement for florescent orange. Kicking poachers and trespassers off your property is not hunting.

Wasn't thinking about apprentice hunters. When I had land that I hunted, I knew I was the only one there unless someone was trespassing.

Wearing fluorescent orange isn't such a big deal but I'm not sure how I feel about having to wear it on my own land. I wonder what happened to see the need to adjust the regs?

Apprentice hunters would be my guess.

From what I understand, apprentice hunters will need to go through a rudimentary hunter safety course online. Hunting safety 101 stuff = do not shoot fluorescent orange.

Even though your situation may not warrant. Lets say a landowner is driving deer for his buddy and his boy (apprentice license holder). From my basic understanding, it's about mitigating potential risks.

Might help someone out, I can see the first step to apprenticeship in a lot of cases is how to get as close to the property line when you can and get them coming off the field (deer). Its the adults you have to worry about not the kids. I see it every year. They should have just proposed Blaze must be worn all the time. When going to the tractor shed, checking the irrigation pivot, brushing a blind, picking up dead chickens or whatever. Standing outside your house. Its a feel good measure that has some merit but hazard mitigation would be having to be able to demonstrate a little more proficiency with a weapon or demonstrate a better decision making process.

Yeah, but why can't this be a choice?

(Rhetorical, not directed at you, but assuming you are correctly divining motivation)

What about varmit control? I assume that isn't considered hunting on your own property. I know plenty of guys who keep a 22lr or even a .223 on the roof of their tractor to take care of ground hogs while mowing, doing chores with it, etc. same thing with taking walks on their property.

I guess keep a rolled up orange hat in your pocket or tucked with the rifle. See hedge pig, pull on hat, pull down rifle.
