Don't Like Orange? Hunters Will Be Able To Wear Pink Instead

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Hunting in fluorescent pink could soon become a Louisiana trend.

         With a 36-0 vote Monday, state senators gave final legislative passage to add the fluorescent color "blaze pink" as an alternative to the traditional "hunter orange" that hunters are required to wear under state law.

         The Senate vote sent the measure by Rep. Malinda White, a Bogalusa Democrat, to the governor's desk.

         White has said she thinks the addition will encourage more women to hunt. She says Wisconsin has enacted a similar provision for its hunters. Louisiana's bill was supported by the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
