(March 16) – A bill sponsored by Rep. Daneya Esgar, D-Pueblo, to allow hunters to comply with state hunting safety laws by wearing fluorescent pink passed the House Agriculture, Livestock, &natural Resources Committee.

“This bill is about giving another safe choice to hunters,” said Rep. Esgar. “Studies show that pink is actually a safer and better choice for many hunters: it is easier for the human eye to detect than orange, and harder for deer to see.”

Currently, a hunter is required to wear fluorescent orange to hunt elk, deer, pronghorn, moose, or black bear. SB16-068 adds the option to wear fluorescent pink. Wisconsin just passed a similar law.
