Having orange on in the stand?

Does your state have a deer regulation that defies common sense?

400 ''SOLID SQ. INCHES---- just thought i would throw that out there...i ran into a guy hunting shotgun for deer outside of a park that i hunt bow at....we all wear the cheap vests and an orange hat while bow hunting[park rules during shotgun]....outside the park the same ''state rules apply to shotgunners...this guy got a ticket ...he was wearing an orange camo coveralls from head to toe and an orange stocking cap...CPO wrote him a ticket because camo orange is unacceptable by illinois regulations...[somethingi think is pathetic and needs to be changed]...he found out the hard way...no warning...just a ticket- :?

I've read somewhere that Deer see hunter orange as a muted yellow color. I think (?) in Dr. James T.Krol's book. So just put it on and watch how much other hunters move around and learn from them.
