I read it too. And I can't find it. But.....I would wear at least a FO hat. I was bow hunting on Tuesday behind my house (2B) and wore a FO hat and vest. Yeah.....FO vs getting shot? FO wins hands down.

But you know Dude......I hunt (and will be hunting) in parts of 2B in the next week or so, with a 44 magnum handgun, and my 45-70 Marlin.

Now, I'm well aware of my targets and the background before I shoot, as there are places where you just don't take the shot because 600 or 700 yards away there is a house. The 44 mag. and the 45-70 are not long range guns.....but ANY bullet with the right trajectory can travel that long and will have sufficient energy to kill or severely injure a person.

However, the point of my rambling is, when the time and place comes where I do take the shot.....I sure do like to know if 200 or 300 yards....or even longer...if there is a hunter back there. And if he's not wearing FO, and all in camo....I sure as heck have much less of a chance of picking him\her out.

Hey.....even if they are trespassers I don't want to whack 'em with a 405gr. lead bullet from my Marlin. I'd rather just ask 'em to leave.

Any way....if your in "highpower land" wear your FO. No deer is worth it.

I'm just sayin......if your gonna be in 2B Westmorland County.....I'm gonna be out there with my 45-70. So....if your in your Cammo and well hidden at 300 yards....and my bullet goes through the doe, and hits you.....Well....Don't have your widow come yappin to me about how I shouldn't have taken the shot.

I'm just sayin......
