Legislator preparing to unveil bill legalizing blaze pink
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Real men could wear pink in the woods under a bill legislators are preparing to unveil next week that would legalize blaze pink for hunters.
Rep. Nick Milroy, a Democrat from South Range in northwestern Wisconsin, plans to hold a news conference Tuesday to announce the measure. A Milroy aide said Friday that Milroy was vacationing in the Boundary Waters and couldn't be reached for comment on the bill's details.
Sen. Terry Moulton, a Chippewa Falls Republican, wrote in a column for the Dunn County News this week that the bill is designed to encourage more women to try hunting. He said a University of Wisconsin-Madison textile expert performed experiments for the legislators and determined that blaze pink is just as visible as blaze orange in the wild.
