The legislature is ready to pass legislation to allow hunters to wear blaze pink. Now I have no idea what the history is around wearing blaze orange but I would think this should just be under the purview of the Department of Natural Resources (or at least whatever is left of it). But that’s not the inane part.
We need to add blaze pink to increase participation in hunting by women…
State Reps. Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) and Nick Milroy (D-South Range) said at a Capitol news conference they hoped the attire would encourage more Wisconsinites to hunt and appeal to women (emphasis mine) and new hunters.
Really? Hunting togs in pink so it appeals to women? Cripes!
