Hunters – just in time for Valentine’s Day…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill, on Feb 4 2016, allowing hunters to wear fluorescent pink instead of the traditional blaze orange.

Previously, at least half of all clothing gun deer hunters wore above the waist had to be blaze orange. This bill allows hunters to swap the orange for fluorescent pink.

The bill’s authors have said the measure is designed to provide more options for hunters and attract more women into hunting, a rationale some female hunters have called sexist.

Unless you’re hiding in a candy shop…well, on second thought I’m okay with it.

And the next time the Commander suggest grilling brats on a rake…well, now you know where he comes up with this stuff.

I personally think #31 should have been in place of #30.

Drone Beer DeliverySeems the guys at Lakemaid Brewery have a pretty good idea. After hearing Amazon’s plan to deliver product via drone copters Lakemaid thought it’d be brilliant to deliver beer to ice fishermen in their shanty’s in the same manner.

Apparently the FAA had a thing or two to say about this.

Considering the ice won’t be out of the lakes until late July this year Lakemaid has a little time to work out the kinks in the regulations.

For more go to Prairie State Outdoors. Thanks to alert reader D.C. from Illinoise for the tip.
