We just went over this a few days ago on this forum. If you bowhunt, follow archery regs. If you firearm hunt, follow firearm regs. Not difficult. You can find any info you want in the HUNTING AND TRAPPING DIGEST where you buy your license. It's that little brochure that explains all the hunting regs. Ever see one of those? Or you can go to the MDNR website and find it all there. So to answer your question, you need not wear hunter orange in December when bowhunting during muzzleloader season. That goes for crossbows as well.
you do not have to wear orange during muzzy season, BUT, if I am on public land I wear something orange out, and back and then it comes off by my stand, regardless of the law, like the old saying goes , I would rather be safe, then shot, by the way good luck If you can get out after the snow is down and then a freezing rain you can hear them a mile away!
