It was not required in Alaska when we lived there but I have a nice upland vest that is orange so I wore it when bird hunting. More for the utility of the vest than the color. Plus when we traveled to Washington and I was bird hunting I had a vest to wear that complied with their regs.

I'll probably continue to wear it while bird hunting Idaho for the same reason

You never know what kind of people are hunting on public or driving by road hunting. I have encountered people that got overly excited and said they shot at rustling leaves. Called taking a sound shot. It is a thing. You never know what kind of nut is in the woods or driving around road hunting.

Louisiana regs.... (copy and paste is easier than typing it)


Generally, when you’re hunting deer during the open firearms deer hunting season, you’re required to wear a total of at least 400 square inches of hunter orange or blaze pink on your head, chest and/or back.
If you’re hunting on privately-owned land, you may wear a hunter orange or blaze pink cap or hat in lieu of the 400 square inches.
If you’re hunting deer from elevated stands on privately-owned land, you are not required to wear hunter orange or blaze pink. However, if you’re hunting on privately-owned land where hunting with firearms is allowed, you must wear the 400 square inches of hunter orange or blaze pink OR a hunter orange or blaze pink cap or hat while walking to and from elevated stands.
If you’re an archery deer hunter hunting on lands where firearm hunting is not allowed, you are not required to wear hunter orange or blaze pink.

As romantic as that sounds, when was the last time you heard af a non-hunter being shot by a hunter (that wasn’t related)?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not disagreeing with you. It just doesn’t happen as often as we might expect it to I don’t think.


New York was the state that started it. When they first started their modern deer season it was a bit of a circular firing squad. Morbidity was extremely high. They did a study and decided on a few measures believed to reduce injury. Hunter Orange was one of them. With Hunter Ed, folks are taught basic catechisms like don't shoot at sounds, don't shoot at skylit animals, etc. All together, the morbidity stats dropped. No one ever went back and figured out the exact cause of the drop.

What is clear is that at the time of the hunter orange rule's inception, invisibility of the hunter was one of the primary causes of being shot. Whether that would be true today remains to be seen.

One thing I will say. I was hunting the Indian Creek WMA east of Cincinnati back 20-some years ago. It was socked in with fog. I hunted in the pea soup and heard and saw nothing. I started out around 10 and the sun came out just as I was approaching the rim. The fog rolled back and there were all these orange spots on the far hillside and down in the bottoms flitting around. It was incredible. What blew my mind was that, as I watched, they came remarkably close to each other without interacting. I'd been down in that soup for hours, and here were little blobs of orange like fireflies on the far hillside.

These are random pics off the web... fkn disgusting blaze orange nonsense !!!!

Sadly... there are hundreds of these pics that support the gun control bs.... Far too many stupid mtrfkrs out in the woods with guns ...

So bad .. that that some states had to create "blaze orange" laws so these stupid mtrfkrs would stop shooting and killing each other every hunting season ... yet they still do !!!!

I bet if it was a hanging or firing squad offense then less stupid mtrfkrs would shoot other hunters and blaze orange would never be a requirement...

Thank God this stupidity isn't required in Alaska ....

Irony here is, NHFG promotes the use of Hunter Orange, but not for themselves. Hunter green, green black plaid, green with red shoulders, seem to be their wardrobe.

Virginia has seasonal requirements for blaze orange. During the general firearms season for deer, and during the early muzzle loading season for deer while hunting deer. I do wear it when required, but not during the seasons leading up to deer season. Though if I take a seat at a treee, I'll generally put a strip of blaze orange around the tree above my head.

Deer, moose and elk, and rodents, can't see orange. They see it as grey. I've never noticed blaze orange ever being a detriment hunting deer or squirrels. Turkeys cans see the full spectrum. But curiously, in the fall, turkeys don't seem to mind it. I've had turkesys work their way upo to my deer stand whgile I was in orange and not seem to mind. I've shuffled my feet and they wandered off, only to come back in 20 minutes or so.

Always hated wearing orange. (possibly because I chafe at being required to do anything)


Here it's cap and torso.


20 years ago we didn't need it in muzzleloader season, and I only wore a cap if I was
hunting with a gang. Many of those guys didn't, one young guy wore Carhart bibs,
the brown duck ones.


Last drive of the day, I was standing at the edge of a small opening. Could see about 75 yards to the heavy brush the drivers were pushing. I heard a little branch crack,
set my trigger turned so i could get the gun up in that general direction. Staring holes in the brush, just a little more rustling. Saw a bit of movement, then finally the guy in
bibs appeared.


I wasn't about to shoot at a sound. (Some do)
Didn't even have the muzzle pointed toward him, or the gun shouldered.
But it scared the Beejeebers out of me.
That brush was thick, if he had pushed a deer out when he was 20 or 30 yards
in, i absolutely would have shot in his direction. I've heard round balls go bouncing through brush, it's hard to tell where one might have went.


Still hate wearing orange.
Still ignore the law on occasion on our property.
But I'm now a firm believer in hats at least.
Off our property, or anytime I'm moving. The orange ribbon thing if sitting.

I don't believe "invisibility" is the right word because lots of times the shooter says they shot at something they saw and thought was an animal.

Mistaken for game is the term used by LE, it's misidentification.

Agree ....... I don't trust other folks with my safety.

I don't understand why so many bristle at having to wear it.

That's a good point. However, it gets damn hard to say: "I thought it was a deer!" if the target is wearing orange.

Hunter Orange does help in shoot-through and shoot-pass accidents. If you see orange, anywhere in the field of view, it is wise to hold your shot.

I wear a fleece orange and camo vest. It has my GPS on one side and my 2-way radio on the other plus spare batteries.

I also carry some form of orange hat, a ball cap or a stocking hat. I tend to wear these when riding a bike in and out or carrying meat. If I don't have an orange hat I wrap some flagging on the one I have on.

Finally, I keep a mesh orange vest in my pack. I use it as a loaner, to mark points so I can return to a course, to cover game when packing it and to cut up for extra flagging if I run out.

I think the orange is more important when hunting rabbits-crows etc or shooting sage rats with a group.

https://fox47.com/news/local/hunter...king-dog-in-adams-county-sunday-dnr-says

A deer hunter mistakenly shot a 47-year-old woman walking her dog Sunday in Adams County.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said the woman was walking her dog on a private property when a 62-year-old hunter believed her dog to be an antlerless deer and shot at the dog.

The incident happened during the opening weekend of gun deer hunting season.

The woman was struck in her abdomen and was transported to the hospital by Med Flight.

The incident is under investigation, according to the DNR, and it's not clear whether charges will be filed against the hunter.
