Question on orange if bow hunting during muzzleloader

Read the regulations and I am still not sure.  Is orange required of a bow hunter during the muzzle loader season?  I know it is during regular gun season.  Thanks.

I hunt with a bow. When do I have to wear orange? During the regular deer gun season you must wear orange. During the muzzleloader season, however, bowhunters do not need to wear orange.
Thats from the ND game and fish website.

Muzzleloader hunters have to wear orange during muzzleloader season, bowhunters do not need to wear orange during muzzleloader season.

Best bet is to put an orange hat on while bowhunting during muzzleloading, not required but safer and would have little affect on deer seeing you!

Not a bad idea if your hunting public land. Bowhunting all of gun season at point blank range and the deer didn't seem to notice the blocky orange.

You are not required as a bow hunter to wear orange during the muzzleloader season.  Only during the regular deer gun season.

"When we step into the outdoors, we have the privilege of standing in the presence of God through the power and majesty of His creation. That makes hunting more than a sport or a hobby. It's a calling to something greater. And that transforms the places that we stand into something more than a cropfield or a pasture or a mountain. It makes that place Hallowed Ground."

Points been made! Just safer having a little orange on when long guns are in the field!

Should anyway.  Deer can not see orange.

Y'all call me a paranoid gun-nut now, but we all know who you're going to be running to for help when the zombies show up.
