Default IL, ground blinds must have orange.

This applies to public hunting areas during firearm deer seasons.

From the IL 2006-2007 hunt regs, page 31.



[align=left]• Blaze Orange Requirement – Ground Blinds on[/align][align=left]Public Hunting Areas. It is unlawful to use or occupy[/align][align=left]a ground blind during any firearm deer season[/align][align=left]on public land unless at least 400 square inches of[/align][align=left]solid vivid blaze orange material is securely[/align][align=left]attached to the uppermost portion of the blind and[/align][align=left]a substantial amount of orange is visible for 360[/align][align=left]degrees.[/align]

Thanks Bulzeye, I wasn't aware of that rule.

I was surprised to see it too.
I almost missed it myself.

It wasn't on the regular deer hunting pages, but further towards the back in the Public Hunting Areas section.

I always throw a couple of orange vests on top of my ground blind. It never hurts to be too safe, especially when you can conceal them very well with limbs and folage.
