In the spring of 2016, Colorado legislature passed Senate Bill 16-068 concerning wearing fluorescent pink garments to hunt big game. This change went into effect August 10, 2016.
What you need to know about the new fluorescent pink hunter safety color:
• Authorized fluorescent pink is an alternative color to daylight fluorescent orange.
• Any person who hunts or take elk, deer, pronghorn, moose, or black bear with any firearm shall wear solid fluorescent pink or daylight fluorescent orange garments (camouflage pink or camouflage orange is not legal).
• The required color shall be a minimum of five hundred square inches to be worn as an outer garment above the waist, part of which shall be a hat or head covering visible from all directions.
• You may mix fluorescent pink and daylight fluorescent orange.
• To date, there isn’t a nationally-recognized study done on bright or fluorescent pink.
• We will accept a product that is sold as fluorescent pink. Fluorescent pink is not on the nanometer light scale
• Pantone 806C represents a good standard for fluorescent pink. We are encouraging companies unfamiliar with Pantone 806C, or if they have questions, to send in a copy of their pink fabric for review to the following address: Hunter Education Coordinator 6060 Broadway, Denver, CO 80216 (PH: 303-291-7264)
