United States : WISCONSIN Governor inks Law Permitting Hunters to wear Bright Pink Clothing.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker inked into law a bill permitting gun deer hunters to wear "blaze pink" clothing when present in the field.

The bipartisan legislation, co-sponsored by Rep. Nick Milroy, D-South Range, makes Wisconsin the soe state in the country to give hunters the choice of wearing bright pink.

Milroy said, "Safety was our first consideration. In working with expert color scientist professor Majid Sarmadi at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Human Ecology, we learned that blaze pink is just as visible, if not more visible, to the human eye than blaze orange."

"Additionally, we learned blaze pink is actually more difficult for deer to see than blaze orange. ... This bill is simply about giving hunters the option to wear blaze pink hunting gear, which has been available to purchase but not yet legal for hunting use."

Milroy said that he has been getting calls from legislators in different states, consisting Minnesota, who are keen in comprising similar legislation.
