I'm am definitely calling B.S. on this one. Deer do not see in color. They have eyesight more closely relatedto a dog (shades of grey). Personally I not falling for that U.V. stuff either! I wouldn't waste my money, just go to wal-mart (or somewhere) and pick up one of those cheapo's for like $1.50.

Please Google "dichromatic vision in deer" and see for yourself what scientists have proven regarding deer and other dichromats vision. You can also look at our patent at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL& p=1&u=/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=540976 0.PN.&OS=PN/5409760&RS=PN/5409760

Vision researchers (including the ones who developed the technology behind Covert Orange) have proven deer see hunter orange as a shade of yellow. By mixing hunter orange with high-intensity UV dye (which deer see very well) it is like mixing two colors of paint the create a third (gray) color.

We realized we would be opening a can of worms when we released this product due to the unsubstantiated beliefs and traditions held by many hunters regarding deer and elk vision. If you choose to ignore theempiricle evidencebehind the technology, that is your right.

I don't agree that deer see blaze orange as bright yellow, they can see orange quite well according to the chart below, the trouble with blaze is it's UV reflectivity which creates a glow. Ordinary blaze sprayed with a UV killer will look like just another patch of orange in a view filled with yellow and orange to them. I'd save my money.

I feel that wearing blaze orange especially in snow makes you blend right in. I have been picked out wearing it in the fall woods but never when snow is covering the ground. The safety it gives to make one visible to other hunters with or without snow is a slam dunk.

A deer's vision is it's weakest line of defense. All you have to do is remain still, spot the deer before it knows you're there,move very slowly and only when it is moving or looking away.

Millions of deer get shot every year by hunters wearing conventional blaze orange. This new product may give you a very slight advantage, but is it worth the cost, and could you gain more of an advantage by improving your hunting skills instead?

I heard a few years backthat deer saw blaze as blue and someone wanted to change the safety color to hot pink. i read it in Outdoor Life. Well if it stands out that much deer are pretty stupid becasue there are a lot of folks wearing it and killing deer.

Look at the folks killing deer and do what they do.
