Yes, thanks for your input guys. I'll invest in a blaze vest and maybe look at adding some contrast to it. I'll let you know how I go, deer tend to be fairly sparse this close to Melbourne but maybe I'll come across something.

I'm surprised that nobody asked me what a jelopin is? Where's the curiosity guys. I must be losing my touch! I can't even set anybody up for a joke!!!!!!!!! Mad Vint2 played along for a while, never took the plunge, then he lost interest. Sad

Cary scared

Make sure whichever State you're hunting in allows it - I'm pretty sure Colorado doesn't.

In Ontario for big game with rifles, shotguns and muzzle leaders you MUST wear a solid Blaze Orange vest and hat totaling to 400 sq ft.

We don't need to wear any of the blaze orange gear out here in Australia. However, with hunter safety being pushed these days I wouldn't mind betting that it will become mandatory in the not too distant future. I don't see it as a problem....although orange just isn't my colour....I don't look at all good in it.
Laughing Laughing

Anybody that works around machinery or trucks....or pretty much anything outside an office has to wear Hi Viz shirts, vests or coats. The popular colours are ultra bright fluoro yellow or orange.

Cheers, Vince

My experience is that around where I hunt the orange just makes you a target for poor hunters. They don't shoot what they don't see or hear. I had a friend that lost a milk cow because he put a blaze orange blanket on its back. There was also a ranger who had his horse shot out from under him - lots of blaze orange there too.

A friend of mine was riding a horse and leading a pack horse while hunting in the mountains of Colorado when he had his pack horse shot dead by another hunter in the area. That's scary. I don't like the idea of someone fixing crosshairs on me. Had enough of that in VietNam.

Hey Vince,
Come on down to NSW and with your 'R' license it is a requirement to wear orange blaze while hunting in State Forests.
I wear something blaze orange all the time when I go out now.
