Blaze Pink is the new Orange!

This fall our Virginia fields and forests may be speckled with pink – as blaze pink gives hunters a new color option that meets Virginia’s blaze-colored requirements for hunting apparel.  On March 13, Governor Terry McAuliffe signed HB 1939, which amends § 29.1-530.1 of the Code of Virginia to include blaze pink in addition to the traditional blaze orange.  Effective July 1, hunters have the option to wear blaze pink in all instances where blaze orange is normally required.  

Wetland Studies and Solutions has blaze pink hats available!  Stop by one of our Virginia or Maryland office locations to pick one up for this season.
