If you have been to a hunter safety class, you will have been told the reason is “safety”. Deer cannot distinguish the color, but your fellow hunters can, and for that reason, wearing blaze orange helps enhance safe hunting. But the truth is more complicated, perhaps this post should be called “why don’t hunters wear blaze orange?”
- The reason hunters wear blaze orange is because they have to by state law.
- The reason hunters don’t wear blaze orange is because of the perception it doesn’t camouflage well or isn’t cool.
