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 \:\)


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.



I'm in flatland farm country there are no mountains or big hills within 10 miles of my property

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.
