    You can be the guy wearing a coffin, I'll wear orange.

    And as far as not wanting to be seen by other hunters, unless you are breaking the law I can't see the intelligence in that.
    One of my treestands is in a less than obvious spot that is quite close to a public road and on public land. When I am in the tree I am very visible I'm sure by road hunters when decked out in orange. As I have taken several good deer from this stand I must confess I hide my orange when a truck comes by. In fact I did so just about 3 hours ago. I have never seen another hunter there and wish to keep it that way. (One example)
    I suspect that your hunter density may be somewhat more that what we have here.
    If it is that bad where you're at I'd wear body armor.

    My point was I know how to get close.
    Me nether. Narrow point of view if you think everyone sits in a stand. The majority of bowhunters I know spot and stalk.

    If the smokepolers want to have a larger season, even though they can hunt during other season fine by me, but dont abreviate mine for someone else shortcomings.

    1) There are many more times I do NOT want to be seen by others than times I do. I MAY NOT WANT YOU TO SEE WHERE I"M AT!
    2) Wearing orange is by no means a guarantee of safety, you still need to know you have a safe backstop, the person in orange can be screened by grass, brush, etc.
    3) Not everyone out and about are mandated to wear orange, like nonhunters, guides, ranchers looking for cows, hikers, etc, so you better be alert for people not in a neon suit at all times.
    4) As a believer in freedom and personal responsibility, I would go to the dirt for your right to make up your own mind when and where to wear orange and when not to. If heaven forbid I shot you in an accident, or if by someone else, I would feel just as bad for your family as you would for mine, but I would not blame you for what you were wearing, orange or not, nor would I attempt to mandate how you dress.
    5) If you hide behind a decoy during rifle season, it's possible you are too stupid to live anyway, and it would be a good way to cleanse the gene pool.
    Thanks WY coyote, you took the words out of my mouth.

    Not to drag this up from the depths (Haha, who am I kidding). A hunter was killed this weekend in Missouri. He was not wearing orange. Perhaps an orange vest and hat would have saved his life?
