In The News: Fluorescent pink new hunter safety option (Spokane Spokesman-Review)

Fluorescent pink is now an acceptable safety color for hunters to wear in the field.

Earlier this month, the state House of Representatives passed a bill expanding orange clothing requirements for hunters to include fluorescent pink, according to a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife news release. The state Senate passed the bill Feb. 20 and Gov. Jay Inslee signed it Monday.

“Orange will always be the classic safety color, but I think our state’s hunters can appreciate something new and different – and because fluorescent pink doesn’t blend in with anything else in the forest or field, it also offers the excellent visibility we need for safety,” said Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, a longtime hunter who was prime sponsor of the bill in a news release.
