why would you not?

i think that during anything other than bow season, it is required....as it should be, imo.

Yes unless you are covered under the landowner exemption. IMO its still a good idea to wear it even if you don't have to.

What dumbA$$ fires a rifle up into a tree while deer hunting! I always wear it when I'm not 30 feet off the ground. If I do get shot while on a 30-40' perch, it was my time to go anyway \:\)

That hunter could be on a hill on the same plane as you sitting in your stand...with orange he could see you and not fire that way...maybe

Just wear it. I've worn it bow hunting quite a few times and the deer seem to react the same as if I wasn't wearing it in bow season

I've been wearing orange bowhunting since the first week of November. For some reason I get busted less when there are no cover on the trees then I do during early bow season. Deer look at me then just keep walking.

Think about it Tn. is not all Flatlands.There are a lot of hills and hollars even in West Tn. A bullet can travel a long way even one bouncing off a rock. I've had shot rain down on me from someone shooting squirrels on the other side of a hill. There are a lot of inexperienced hunters out there. Kids with new 22's. Buck fever can hit even the most experienced hunters. Accidents happen. Orange is always a good idea to help prevent accidents even when it is not required.

I'm a landowner in the flat swamps of West TN and don't wear the orange in the stand. I sure like having it when I am on the ground though - especially in the brush retrieving a deer.

What moron shoots at an unidentified target? I wear my orange, not because I have to, but because there are idiots who "ground check" whatever movement they see. I know hunter shootings happen by pure accident (along with ignorance) sometimes but they certainly shouldn't. In reality there should be no need for an orange law.

In mtn, hill, and ridge country, 30' up in a tree may be a level or downhill shot. Someone does not have to be firing up a tree to make it a dangerous place to be without orange on.

Because there is a TVA line running thru one of the properties I hunt. I carry a extra orange vest with me. I hang it on a fence post so it can be seen from the road and from the property line hunters stands. I was pleased to have someone come and Thank me for it this year. I was told it is a constant reminder that some else is in the woods hunting while he is sitting in the box stand in his backyard.

Answer is a simple 'Yes' its required for everyone except landowner exemptions in TN. Unlike AL where I believe your legal without it once in an elevated stand.

I always wear my orange. Deer aren't going to spot that. They'll spot movement or smell you. Many deer have been killed by folks in blue jeans, flannel shirts, and orange hats n vest.

Okay. My take on this. I hunt my own land. I wear orange. I want to be seen and not mistaken for a deer by an idiot that shoots at movement. Now that someone is hunting the property behind mine, I hang orange on the backside of my tree so they won't shoot that direction. I am level with the ridge behind me and am not willing to take a chance. The deer don't notice so there is no valid reason to not wear it.

Even more of a reason to wear orange. Here is a simple math problem for you flat landers.

If a person is shooting at a deer that is 8 feet higher in elevation than they are in relatively flat terrain (because we all know there is no such thing as perfectly flat unless we are on water), and that deer is 100 yards away, how high will their shot be at 500 yards if they miss? In this example, they will de shooting at an upward angle of less than 2 degrees (1.53 to be exact). In flat terrain, that bullet will be 40 feet above ground level at 500 yards down range. In the same example, if they are shooting at a deer at 30 yards, the same elevations will be attained if the deer is 2.16 feet above horizontal line of site.

There is absolutely no reason not to wear orange while you are hunting, unless you are competing for a Darwin Award.

Score one for the professor!
NE Iowa where I work occationally is flat as a pancake. Huge bean and corn fields, thus some huge deer in that area. They ONLY allow MZ there for the very same reasons as stated above.

deer cannot see the orange color, they can in fact see the fluorescent nature of Blaze orange. that is a fact. i think it it just looks ridiculous. Fat folks look like giant pumpkins. average folks look like UT fans. stealth mode for me, when i am hunting land i own of course

If you worry about deer seeing orange, then buy a bottle of UZ killer and use it on your orange vest. http://www.atsko.com/products/uv-protection/u-v-killer.html
I use it on all my outer hunting clothes. As soon as I started using the stuff, I noticed deer coming a lot closer unaware of my presence.

Regardless of whether or not deer see me though, I do NOT want to be shot so I'm going to wear orange when I'm hunting. And that goes for crows too. They are about as wary as any animal alive and they fly right over the stuff. It's motion that gets you seen for the most part. Oh yeah, I hunt almost exclusively on my own land but neighbors hunt and there is always a psoobility of a trespasser. Why take a risk?

I hate to admit it, but on my own land, once I'm settled into my stand, the orange comes off. It then goes back on before I climb down. Climbing in and out of the stand, or moving anywhere on the property, I'm in orange. Sitting still on my stand, nope.

I'm glad you admitted to it first ...same thing here.

And for me, it isn't the color orange I'm worried about. It is the large area of one color. "Camo" is more about breaking up your outline by varied colors/patterns than the actual colors used.

I slip mine off too when I am in my box blinds, up a tree in a stand, pop-ups etc. However, if I am on the ground it is on. I will not even ride my 4 wheeler on my property during seer rifle season without an orange vest on. I have run into far too many trespassers and dumb butts to feel safe without it.

I always wear mine going in and out of the woods or if I do a little in season scouting [which I seldom do] But I do take it off when I get settled into my stand. I also put it on when i'm field dressing any deer that I or my wife has killed.
I wear "camo" orange but still feel like I stick out like a turd in a punch bowl with it on.
On my own land of course.

I have had more deer right beside/behind/ in front of me while wearing my big blob of orange than duirng bow and haven't been busted yet. A lot of times they are level with me and one pulled leaves off a beech tree that put his line of site right up my stand. Being still is the key.

Yeah, I had a yearling doe stand 18 feet from me last year for 22 miutes eating greenbriar while I wore my orange vest and hat. She looked directly at me many times and I had no cover whatsoever.

I'm ok with the orange hat, but I can't stand wearing an orange vest. If you shoot me while I have a florescent orange hat on my head, you meant to...IMO
