    Do you wear Hunter Orange in Nevada?

    Looks like Orange is not required during hunting seasons in Nevada.

    Do you wear it?

    I usually don't and most guys I see out here don't either. I used to have an orange hat clipped to the top loop of my pack but don't do it any more. I think if I were hunting a thick area that I know a lot of other hunters are in I would throw the hat on. Growing up hunting here it's not something you are used to, no doubt much safer though. Now that I'm getting older and have a kid I should probably be thinking safety before looks.

    I dont usually wear it unless its required or its a hunt with alot of pressure but I do my best to avoid those kind of hunts.

    I haven't worn it but it would probably be safer. I haven't worried with archery but there are still people that shoot at what moves I guess

    I think it is crazy and irresponsible for anyone to go afield during rifle season without even an orange cap. This should be a nationwide law. Almost all game animals don't c orange anyhow! Be safe wear orange

    I don't and don't want to. But I think it would be more safe if I did.

    I can definitely see it being a law during a gun season and smart to wear it.

    I dont think it should be a law anywhere. Not that I am against wearing it at all, I just think it should be your decision. I feel the same way about seat belts.

    If you're not required to wear it, it seems prudent to at least have some with you for various reasons. Especially when packing game out, and double especially when you have horns/antlers strapped to a pack.

    On a side note, when packing out antlers on your back, always turn the rack DOWN to make it look as unnatural as possible. You never know what angle another hunter may see those things from where the hunter could be almost totally obscured.
