Pink is the new orange for Wisconsin hunters

A bill was just signed into law in Wisconsin that allows hunters to wear blaze pink as well as blaze orange, reports Bring Me the News.

The bill was proposed in May 2015; the representatives who drafted it said it was “designed to provide more options for hunters and boost interest in the pursuit at a time hunter numbers are declining.”

According to FOX 6, some female hunters have described the measure as sexist.

Before this law, only orange blaze protective clothing was allowed to be worn by hunters in Wisconsin.

According to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin is the first state to allow blaze pink, though Arkansas has allowed chartreuse as well as orange since the 1990s.

Orange is still the only color allowed to be worn by hunters in Minnesota.
