New bill would allow hunters to wear pink safety gear instead of orange

The House of Delegates unanimously passed a bill allowing hunters to wear blaze pink instead of blaze orange hunting apparel.

They say the pink is proven to be more visible. The bill will now go to the Senate for consideration.

For safety reasons, Virginia requires hunters to wear blaze orange during deer hunting season – so they’ll stand out and not get shot by another hunter accidentally.

Some believe the color option will draw more women to hunting. About 13,000 women currently are registered to hunt in Virginia.
