Thumbs down Bright Pink regulations in Louisiana

The representatives in the Louisiana House have passed a bill, endorsing bright pink to be worn in La. woods, in lieu of hunter's orange ! Their reason for this, is a sham! To draw more women hunters into the deer woods, they are appeasing supporters,and disregarding hunter's safety. They say, because of few hunters, this regulation, more women more than likely will head to the deer woods.... I don't think so !

The blaze orange requirement was strictly for hunter safety. Now they have decided that PINK is ok just to attract more women. What about safety issue for these same women. If I am out in the woods and see a Blaze Orange anything then I automatically and instinctively know not to shoot in that direction. If I see pink that moment of hesitation is not there. Sorry folks but this will get someone shot or killed.

The LA guys should be glad there will be some kind of warning that there are women in the woods with guns!

My native CO is also doing this and they say the same thing: To get more women in the field. Not sure I buy off on that but hey, I don't have to wear pink. I'll keep wearing the same vest and cap I've been wearing for more than 20 years.

Talking

Seems more and more idiots are getting elected to positions where they need to make good dections about hunting and do not know any thing about it.

Hunter numbers are declining not due to the lack of women afield.
There are several reseasons for the decline. Won't got into that as different areas/states have different reasons.
Here in Michigan land is an issue as well as high cost of tags and such. All the pink hunting outfits given out free would not fix that.

So you won't shoot a woman dressed in orange.... But you might shoot one in pink because the hesitation isn't there? You need to be sure of your target and what's beyond it before shooting anything. Regardless of color. I'm sure you know that. If it gets more people hunting I say go for it. I can't imagine anybody is going to start hunting because they are allowed to wear pink though. I prefer blaze orange.

It is no more than feel good do nothing legislation. The kind of thing the legislatures would rather spend time on than anything meaningful.

I can take your avatar and do a little photo editing to show you how fashionable you might be in hunter pink. LOL, just kidding with ya, I agree having the color there just means its another accepted color, nothing more nothing less.

Can State Legislators work on more important things, sure, do we really believe this took more than 5 seconds on the floor, probably not. Industry reps probably asked for this and they are the only ones that really benefit from it. Does it hurt anything, nope, so I don't blame them for trying to squeeze an extra buck (pun not intended) out of our other demographics.
