If you had the choice between wearing blaze orange or blaze pink to the deer stand this season, which one would you choose?

To many hunters, this shouldn't even be a question, but it soon might be. On May 26, 2015, the Wisconsin Legislative Sportsmen's Caucus spoke in front of a Capitol news conference hoping to change the hunting attire up a bit.

The proposal is not to change from the traditional hunting orange to pink but simply adding this pink attire to the lineup of hunting color options. The committee believes this will encourage more Wisconsinites to hunt as well as appeal to women and future hunters.


Over the past several years, there have been many companies in the hunting industry adding pink camouflage to their clothing pattern lineups as well as gun pattern schemes. This way brands can appeal to different sex genders while remaining true to their brands.


So with that being said, if the proposal makes it to your state, which color are you in favor for? Keeping the tradition alive? Or adding a little spice to your life? Do you think the proposal is a waste of time, or do you think it will help attract future hunters to the sport?
