Wisconsin Deer Hunting Discussion

I was invited to visit the Douglas County Historical Society in Superior, Wisconsin. They are hosting the Wisconsin History Tour through July; which I highly recommend seeing. I did a book discussion with Wisconsin History Tour host, Jim Draeger, about the traditions and culture of deer hunting and my book Blaze Orange – Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin. Representative Milroy says the bill is designed to attract more women to hunting. In the process of putting the bill together he learned that initial testing demonstrates the color may be safer for hunters while being harder to see by deer. We had a short discussion on Blaze Pink along with other discussions pertaining to deer hunting. I included a few images to share from the History Tour at the Douglas County Historical Society.
