An Act To Allow Hunters To Wear Hunter Pink Instead of Hunter Orange in October in Recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA 11203, sub- 1, as amended by PL 2005, c. 477, 6, is further amended to read:

1. Hunter orange or hunter pink required. A person may not hunt with firearms or crossbows during the open firearm season on deer unless that person is wearing 2 articles of hunter orange clothing that are in good, serviceable condition and visible from all sides, except that a person hunting waterfowl from a boat or blind or in conjunction with waterfowl decoys is not required to wear hunter orange clothing. One article of clothing must be a solid-colored hunter orange hat. The other article of clothing must cover a major portion of the torso, such as a jacket, vest, coat or poncho, and must be a minimum of 50% hunter orange in color. The presence of a decal on an article of clothing that is otherwise solid-colored hunter orange does not disqualify that article of clothing from satisfying the requirements of this subsection.

During the month of October, a person may hunt with firearms or crossbows during the open firearm season on deer while wearing 2 articles of hunter pink clothing in lieu of hunter orange clothing as long as those articles of clothing otherwise meet the requirements of this subsection. The commissioner shall define what constitutes hunter pink for purposes of this subsection.

summary

This bill provides that during the month of October a hunter may wear pink hunter safety clothing in lieu of hunter orange clothing in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
