    Show Us Your Hunter Orange Apparel!

    Hey Guys,

    Now that its hunting season, what orange apparel do you wear? I'm having a hard time figuring out what to get.

    For riding through hunting areas (rail to trail) or for riding to hunt?

    If itís warm, I just wear an orange or similarly bright T-shirt. If itís chilly, I have this jacket, a Patagonia Alpine Guide. I picked it up cheap when they updated it with a less breathable laminate fabric.

    Our local trails are closed during firearms deer season, but outside of that, during bow season which is longer, it's generally prudent to wear blaze orange. There are many hi-viz orange and green polypropylene shirts on Amazon usually around $8 - $15. Around here, these are common too.

    Apparenlty it's Primalware. I'd have to look at the tags.

    Yeah, they're road shoes, but I just got them about two weeks ago. Pictures don't do them justice, in real life, they're a bright, bright blaze orange.


    They do make a mountain shoe in the same color.

    $100 idea that I've never made happen:
    Remember lycra helmet covers, before there was plastic over the foam.
    Remember foam beer coozies that you bought at local gas stations with dumb slogans like " welcome to loserville population 1. Thats you."
    Marry these two brilliant ideas, in hunter orange, and sell them and sell them cheap at the LBC.
    Bam! Drop mic.
    Somebody with more time than me make this happen.

    ^^^ you can still get helmet covers. I've got a some in yellow that I use when it's cold/rainy/hunting season.

    I used to hunt in some areas where motor vehicles where prohibited and used mtbs with BOB trailers to haul gear and game. That was mainly archery so no blaze orange. Did some handgun hunting on mtbs too. Blaze orange for that, of course.
    Do the math.

    Big box sporting goods stores like Dicks have running t shirts pretty cheap that come in all sorts of bright colors. They're pretty light and breathable, buy a size up and layer over your regular gear if it's cold. I use them for road riding too. This is from a railtrail ride that passes through open country and woods where hunting occurs.

    Yeah I know this is a late response, As a hunter bow and firearm I also use a MTB to scout with...During hunting season stay TFO of hunting areas on MTB everybody should respect each others space...

    Disclaimer: Second Amendment is a joke...NRA [New Republican Army] is a political scam.

    So you use firearms and don't support the 2nd Amendment? Nice...

    Another constitutional scholar weighs in....

    As a "political scam" it's been quite effective...one which has apparently been kicking your ass for quite some time. And likely will for some time to come.

    This is precisely backwards out here. Nearly the entire USFS is a hunting area. Hunting around popular trail networks is dumb, although lazy people do it.
