    I believe in personal freedom with safety issues like this. the same with seat belts, motorcycle helmets, etc. If you choose not to wear them you are the one responsible for what happens to you. Even if it wasn't a law I would wear a seatbelt going down the highway.
    I wouldn't wear blaze orange when big game hunting if it wasn't mandated, but bird hunting in crowded public areas with heavy cover I think it's a good idea.
    How refreshing it would be to be allowed to make up your own mind when you feel safe or not, and how to dress yourself.

    How do you think it would work out if we set our own speed limits too? How about those pesky red lights?

    No it isn't. Laws are made to protect us. Whether you like it or not.

    Unless you want to go back to the old days when the strong survives?

    Well I guess we agree to disagree, I personally think the orange rule here in Colorado was really setup so the Wardens can see the hunters easier. Who knows, if they had their way archery hunter might be wearing it to. Just my opinion!

    It does matter if you dont know your target. We lost a hunter opening weekend becuase someone didnt know target and that hunter was dressed from head to toe in orange.Enjoy life to the fullest you never know when it will be your last day.

    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    What do you mean if they had their way? If what you think is true. The bow hunters would be wearing orange.

    He had head to toe orange? And still got shot?

    Do you have any links to an article, that's really sad.
