Bill allows Wyoming hunters to wear fluorescent pink

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill that would let big game hunters in Wyoming wear fluorescent pink has passed the state Legislature.

Senate File 61 received final approval Friday on a 39-21 vote in the state House. It now goes to Gov. Matt Mead.

Under current state law, big game hunters must wear blaze orange as a safety measure to help distinguish themselves for other hunters.

Supporters of the legislation say the additional fluorescent pink color gives hunters a choice. In addition, one textile expert testified that fluorescent pink is superior to blaze orange in terms of visibility during fall hunting.
