Examples of blaze orange and pink
Hunter safety is a top priority. Blaze clothing has been found to be one factor that has helped make hunting one of the safest outdoor activities.
- All hunters and trappers in the field during the open firearms/muzzleloader deer seasons must display blaze orange or blaze pink on the visible portion of the person's cap and outer clothing above the waist, excluding sleeves and gloves.
- When no firearms/muzzleloader deer season is open, a person may not take small game unless the visible portion of at least one article of clothing above the waist is blaze orange or blaze pink. See exceptions noted below.
- Blaze orange or blaze pink camouflage patterns are allowed and must be at least 50 percent blaze orange or pink within each square foot.
