That's awful. Know your target, but in the same breath put on a friggin orange hat at the very least!!!

I live by a rule that very rarely fails me regardless if I'm buying something, driving, hunting or whatever "Assume everyone is a dumbass until proven differently". We all see dumbass drivers doing dumb shit that we need to pay attention to everyday on our commutes to a from work. No different when in the woods.

Neither party was wearing orange. Wear orange when any firearms season is open. Like NH Hunter says, assume there are some "without all their lights on" people out there.

Show me the stats with orange on vs no orange nationally. Hunter related shootings dropped dramatically with the introduction of hunters wearing hunter orange.

Hunter related shootings also dropped once states made hunter education courses a requirement.

It’s still the shooters fault hands down. But there’s absolutely no reason in the world not to wear some piece of orange clothing.

You had one fatal shooting in NY last year. Not wearing orange……. His hunting partner who had 45 years experience shot and killed him .

I always read about the hunting accidents, and basically 99% of the time, the article says the victim was not wearing hunter orange.

Just curious but why?

It’s not Kevlar, so I understand it doesn’t keep you from being shot. I also understand you don’t wear it duck or turkey hunting. But this guy was bear hunting and foolishly mistaken for a bear. But I’m extremely curious when I hear hunters say “I don’t like being seen by other hunters” why?

I despise orange with every fiber of my being. That said if you are planning to hunt the entire deer season in Maine, as you say you are, you will be wearing it to be legal.
