    Justin, can you clear something up for me and my family? In the most recent BHOD video you shoot a doe from a bail blind. My family swears you and Dustin are wearing hot pink vests. I think it's just the lighting in there. I'll reserve and judgment in the event they are pink, just in case there was some noble cause here, like breast cancer awareness.

    They were definitely pink vests. In Wyoming, and a lot of other states, both blaze orange as well as pink are legal during firearms season. Dustin happened to have a couple blaze pink vests laying around so we put them on and went hunting. No noble cause to speak of. Just a couple dudes, spending some quality time together in a ground blind, wearing our pink vests.

    Here in TN, pink would be illegal, 500 square inches of hunter orange on the head and upper body.
    Interesting, hear that the roll bale blinds are quite effective. Somewhere, I saw a blind made to look like a Holstein cow. Just keep the bull tied up.

    Hay bale blinds are incredibly effective. This isn't the first time we've bumped deer off a field, set out a blind, and had deer in bow range not long after. It's pretty amazing. The window systems in them could be better and they're tough to film from, but they sure do work well.

    In Wyoming you only need a single blaze orange or pink outer garment during firearms season. So either a hat or a vest will work. You don't need both.

    I'm sure that Tennessee has a bigger concentration of hunters than Wyoming. I could see the reasoning there. I grew up in Ohio in the 50s and 60s. Hunters could get by with a red hat. Later, it was shown that red could be seen as brown in shadows. Hunter Orange is used as it does not occur naturally in the wild.

    Geejuzzz that episode was a **** show. The crossbow guy needs to go back to PlayStation, handle bars needs to practice more than once a year and they ALL need to shoot lower 1/3! I wish I had that many opportunities to see deer.
