SB 154 had a hearing on 2/10 in House FWP but no action have been taken yet.
It is funny that people think deer see the same as humans. Do some research, these same guys that don't wear orange will probably wash all there clothes with detergents with UV brightners so they look like a beacon to all deer on the mountain. If you don't want hunters or game wardens to see you I don't get that one. To each his own. I have seen enough crazy hunters out that I will be wearing orange every time I go out no matter what the law is.
I too would like the choice but I feel that we should be required wear a hat. If it passed I'd probably continue to wear orange but not as much. I'm a big guy so when I wear orange I'm well over the minimum requirement.
