Safety orange, hopefully other hunters will not mistake you as a target. On our land I wear mostly wool, camo pattern, but when on the ground and on the move will change flags and wear a safety orange knit hat. I don't hunt state lands anymore, but if and when off the land in during rifle season, its wise to be seen and easily distinguished from deer or other game.

Archery, well the camo does help conceal, deer do see movement, so it helps when hunting from short ranges.

Accidents and fatalities still happen, I'd want to be head to toe in orange on state land, of course, not being seen may have some validity, some people should not be allowed to hunt given what they do, and its those I'd not want to be seen by, but its best to have safety orange if on public lands. Best scenario is to have your own land and be able to control who is on it. We all know where each other is, we can communicate via cell phone, used to use radios, so if one goes on the ground to stalk or push, which is rare, we all know about it. Someone trespasses and is behind the scenes, not visible, takes an awful risk, I've warned many about it here, that I have caught, right behind my shooting lane, with no safety orange on, obviously so because they did not want to be seen, signs are clearly posted and I do not worry about it, I have no obligation to guarantee a trespassers safety for any reason, if they are foolish enough to conceal themselves that is behind where I will shoot at targets, deer when in season etc.

In MA you must wear 500 sq inches of blaze (Hunter) orange during shotgun season but i and most i hunt with wear a combo of both all the time, every year you read about someone wiping there arse in the woods and being shot.

Yes, there seems to be a specification on how much, which is a good thing. Thats one color, white or anything similar, you do not want showing, I cut 2 tags of my fold up chair bag, white flags, no good. Most of these accidents I'll not try to understand, some are really odd base on the circumstances, best to own some land or have an in on somewhere safe, I'd quit unless I knew it was safe.

Hunting Your own land doesn't always work--I got shot in the back while hunting my own land by a moron who was hunting next door on the neighbors property and shot over the rock wall that was the property line. Ironic in that i had hung up my gun as i had determined it was too dark to safely hunt anymore that day!!

Takes all types doesn't it. The terrain here provides me cover, but if I go up top, theres a nice 20 acre field abounding the top of that ridge, I will wear orange and scan the perimeter from cover, I trust no one. Someone must have been ticked off, as they stole the stand up there, as that does take off 600 feet or so they should not be shooting towards, much better hunting down in the valley anyway, but the few hundred acres back there, there is always some undesirables, not so posted and patrolled, so I mostly avoid that ridge for now, not worth the hassle or the worry.
