Did you know Blaze Pink is now a legal alternative to Blaze Orange in Wisconsin? Legislation has been introduced in other states also.



Does anyone think this will really attract more women to hunting?

Is that what it is marketed to be doing?

May draw more men to the sport peep

I honestly don't know if woman hunters, would associate the color any different.

I enjoy my pink camo shirts from Wally as much as the next girl, but I think it's pretty silly. I think women who love to hunt or are genuinely interested in taking it up aren't going to give a damn about orange vs. pink. If she's that worried about how she looks in the field, she isn't that into actually going hunting. Just my two cents.

I will make my wife wear blaze orange when she is in the woods. It's about being safe not about walking down a fashion runway.

I think any of the fluorescent colors (yellow, orange, pink, etc.) are probably equally safe. If its safe and it makes a segment of the hunting public happy then I'm all for it.

I recall reading something years ago that stated blaze pink was actually more visible than orange. I doubt it makes much difference, either way.

I'm all for anything that encourages more people to get out in the woods and have fun. If pink camo makes it more fun for you, then that's awesome. I'm still an orange vest kind of guy that's probably 30 years old without any need for anything newer or fancier.

This is interesting, pink is not a color readily seen by red-green colorblind people.

Texas Blaze Orange Laws

Man and Boy Hunting
All persons on public hunting lands (state, national forests, and grasslands) during daylight hours when hunting with firearms is permitted must wear at least 400 square inches of hunter orange material with orange headgear, and at least 144 square inches appearing on both chest and back.


The one pictured does not meet the criteria because of the camo pattern. Most states have minimum unbroken requirements.

It would meet the requirements for Wisconsin, which is where the law is being considered.
It would for Texas, as noted. http://tpwd.texas.gov/education/hunter-education/blaze-orange-laws


The only states I find that require unbroken blaze or flourescent orange are Rhode Island, Maine, Maryland, Kentucky South Carolina, and Mississippi.

Heck, a bunch of states just strongly suggest orange be worn, LOL.

It would meet it in Michigan as well. I would imagine it would be OK anywhere blaze camo is allowed.

My wife hates shrink it and pink it in hunting appeal
