State regulations require that all users of the management areas must wear at least 200 square inches of solid daylight-fluorescent orange material throughout the turkey-hunting season. A hat or vest qualifies for the 200-square-inch requirement and also meets the specification that the fluorescent orange is worn above the waist. Turkey hunters themselves, however, remain exempt from the requirement, but are urged to wear the protective coloring while walking to and from their stands.
A special turkey hunting season for youths and paraplegics will be held on April 23 and April 24, and the regular turkey hunting season takes place from April 28 through May 26.
