Elk Can See Orange

Record #:
A recent study, sponsored by the National Rifle Association, discovered that elk can distinguish safety orange from other colors and may have better color perception than biologists previously thought. Despite this discovery, the chances of success are not diminished for skilled outdoorsmen. The orange vests do diminish a hunter’s chances of being mistaken for an elk.
