For the four decades I've been hunting, and well before that, landowners who hunt on their own property have always been exempt from the hunter orange requirements. No more.
Is this a big deal? Well, yes and no. Hunter safety orange is required for many types of hunting and it's always a safe thing to wear. Other hunters can see you better and not mistake you for the animal they're after. I think every hunter agrees that wearing hunter orange during gun seasons for deer and small game is a good idea.
But as I mentioned above, landowners have always been exempt from that requirement on their own property. Most still wear the hunter orange when heading into the deer woods, but I don't know any landowners who believe the DNR should be able to dictate a dress code to a taxpaying landowner on their own place.
Landowners on their own property are often at the ready even when they aren't hunting. I've often split wood behind the shed during deer season with the rifle nearby just in case something walked into the field. Most farmers keep a rifle handy when in the field or working on equipment for the same reason. Pick that rifle up and shoot a deer now, on your own place, in season, but just wearing your normal work clothes or coveralls? You'll have a hefty fine and ticket coming your way.

Over the last few weeks, here at See3D we have been contacted by a number of female hunters asking about our 3D camo suits. It seems that the whole pink camouflage movement has not been that appealing to women hunters.
At See3D™ we have developed technology that allows us to take and view photos of what deer see. To our knowledge, it is the most accurate representation of deer vision to date.
Check out what the Blaze Orange of the See3D suit looks like to deer.
Our Camo Suits are cut baggy and designed, if needed, to go over the top of other clothes.
For example, here in Vermont late deer season can get cold with snow on the ground, so our suits are cut to wear a warm coat underneath.
Our sizes are organized by height:
If you are hunting in an area where you won't be layering, then these sizes can be ordered as is.
If you anticipated layering bulky clothes or are heavier for your height, then consider a size up.
