    Let me be clear, I never said it should be a law, just I could see why states would make it a law though.

    I'm glad it's not law in NV. If I go to a state that requires it I will wear orange. I'm uncertain about the debate on if game can see it, lots of animals taken every year by hunters in orange. It's obviously in place in some states for a reason. More hunters = more chance of an accident. It's my personal preference and all my buddies as well

    I wear it in bird season, but thats because my bird vest happens to be orange lol. I don't think it should be law, but if someone wants to wear it... More power to 'em!

    Here in Colorado M/L hunters have to wear orange and its during archery season when they all camo up. Don't really have any problem with the M/L's shooting at the archers in their camo that I know of. Never wore any camo in California in 60 years of hunting either. The Colorado situation really frosts me. I wear orange so the archery guys can see me (and my gun), but they wear camo and I can't see them.....don't make a lot of sense. Somebody enlighten me!

    The bad thing is that I believe that the deer, elk, antelope, etc can see the orange. The experts say it looks white to them, but no matter how they perceive it, it is not natural and they see it.
    The whole CO law making muzzy hunters where orange is Kinda funny since all the bow hunters Are in camo??? It would make more sense for the bow hunters to wear orange. Not that I support that. I wish CO would at least change the requirement to just an orange hat if they won't change the whole thing. Goofy...

    Pretty much the same thing I was going to say when I got done reading all the other quotes.

    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.
    I have a blaze orange flap that hold the load on to my pack when I'm packing out. I think it's a great idea to at least use it when packing.
