You must wear a cap, hat, vest, jacket or rain gear of hunter orange when taking game during the established daylight shooting hours from Aug. 15 through April 30. Hunter orange includes camouflage that is not less than 50 percent hunter orange. The garments that are hunter orange must be the hunterโ€™s outermost garment and must be visible from all sides of the hunter. Exception: This does not apply to a person engaged in the taking of deer with a bow or crossbow during archery deer season, a person taking bear with a bow or crossbow, a person engaged in the taking of turkey, crow or other migratory birds other than woodcock, a person engaged in the sport of falconry, or a person who is stationary and in the act of hunting bobcat, coyote or fox.

Generally a good idea to be wearing orange if outdoors for any reason where hunting may occur. Especially hats and jackets.

It's surprising though how well red or even blaze orange on the move sort of blends in with a thick array of brown tree trunks nearer the viewer to give the impression of brown movement.

Serious but stable condition. The kid should pull through.

What would you do if you heard a deer saying that it was time for dinner?

lol
I've had fools shoot at me (maybe on purpose?) having "target practice" at squirrels while I was deeper in the woods off trail. Not a nice feeling hearing "zip,zip.." for no reason. Too bad squirrels and deer can't shoot back.

"The younger boy had gone to call his 17-year-old brother in for dinner".
Gone, meaning traveled, with the intention to call, speak. There's no tape or other evidence of him having vocalized before the shot.
The average fatality rate for people in hunting areas during hunting season is lower than for the general population elsewhere during the same time period. That's partly because of well developed safety precautions and partly because the least healthy don't generally hunt or hike in hunting areas, and other hazards. The average weekend fatality rate in Chicago is higher than the annual hunting fatality rate of some entire states.

It may come as a shock to some that my posts are not always entirely serious.

I don't imagine it would feel better, someone firing specifically at me for a reason. Game not possessing weapons beyond those evolution equipped them with is lucky for us. There is that "According to Jim" episode where a tom turkey fires a crossbow bolt into Jim's posterior.
