Default Orange on WMA South Carolina

Does anyone know if the requirements for wearing orange on public land in South Carolina only apply while going to and from your stand or if you have to keep it on the whole time? Also if you were sitting in a blind on the ground? Thanks in advance.

Wearing Orange on WMAís During Deer Season

Deer hunting season is upon us! We at the Palmetto Conservation Foundation want you enjoy the Palmetto Trail and be safe by being visible. Now it is also a legal requirement in Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs). The new law is as follows:
If our maps indicate hunting is allowed on public land, it is best to assume it falls under the new law and it is required to wear international blaze orange. It is also possible that the Palmetto Trail travels through private land that allows for hunting. While hunting is not allowed within a certain distance (depending on the passage) of the trail it is best to wear international blaze orange during the hunting season.
Act 18: This Act requires that ďAll nonexempt persons must wear a hat, coat, or vest of solid international orange while on Wildlife Management Area lands during deer hunting season.Ē
Please visit the Department of Natural Resourcesí (DNR) website for more information.
