I have not hunted here in CA, I am from NM and have done most of my hunting there. We were never required to wear orange, so I never have, but I am considering it here. I have been scouting for deer a bit in D16 and have found that it is hard to get away from easy hunting as far as I can tell. Seems like there could be a lot of hunters out there and orange could be a good idea! Still trying to find some good places deep in the Cleveland to get away from crowds and find a decent buck!
I always wear orange while rifle hunting. My father had a guy shoot right at em one time through some brush. Obviously the BASTARD didn't make sure of his target. Lucky for my father the the guy was a bad shot! But, the other guy was lucky my father didn't return the favor. This is why I ALWAYS wear blaze orange during rifle season. :/
I were sold orange hat for chucker, quail, pheasant, rifle deer season, I haven't looking for pigs. I have a safety vest I put on deer on the drag out way to many trigger happy yahoos where I deer hunt
