This past weekend was opening weekend for deer season here in central New York. I thought I’d take a moment to remind everyone that this is not the best time of year to be in the woods impersonating a White-tailed Deer. Be sure to wear hunter’s orange and be safe!
Fun Fact, did you know that the reason hunters wear the bright orange vests is because deer are color blind? The bright orange isn’t an issue for deer and that’s why you sometimes see hunting vests that have camouflage but include that brilliant orange. It’s enough for other hunters to see but it doesn’t scare aware the deer. Unfortunately, birds do see the full color spectrum. I’d love to see a study examining the reaction of birds to hunter orange vests.
