A Hunter Orange Missive

A week or so ago James, a loyal reader from Georgia, sent an email asking “How do you meet the requirements for the blaze orange that you are supposed to wear?”

What a great question! This topic comes up all the time at the outdoor shows, and I have hunter orange clothing examples on hand and photos in the albums to show guests the many ways a traditional hunter can comply with the law. Over the years I have written a number of magazine articles on the subject, and when his request came in I started looking through this site with the idea of sending him a link to one or more posts. Well there aren’t any, grumble, grumble, grumble…

Dragging a deer on the snow using a portage collar.Yes, I talk about using hunter orange in the various posted articles, the latest one being “A Circuitous Still-Hunt.” But I have not addressed the topic, and due to the serious safety considerations associated with today’s hunting environment, I thought it was time to correct that oversight on my part.

I thought it best to elevate “An Atrocious Fashion Sense?” to full page status, so I placed this missive under “The Basics” category in the navigation bar. Please let me know what you think, and how you comply with hunter orange regulations.

Give traditional black powder hunting a try, be safe and may God bless you.
