Hope this finds you well and getting ready for the up coming season. I am looking forward to your shows as always, I find them very informative as well as entertaining. I have a question, why is it that you never wear any hunter orange, when in every other upland bird hunting show I have seen, the wearing of hunter orange is recommended and in some cases required for safety? I look forward to your reply.
Thanks for the reminder of blaze’s importance… and the compliment. I got the message and you’ll see plenty more this season, believe me. I always wear the legally-required amount when mandated, but don’t make a big deal of it. I will go beyond that
in the new episodes starting this fall, hopefully serving as a better example to viewers, especially young ones.
We try to strike a balance on the show, with high definition cameras orange is difficult to work with – technically and visually. Your eyes are actually distracted by it. Editors hate it. We have to meet very strict technical standards to be on NBC Sports/Versus, including a bunch of color balance/frequency issues that other shows don’t really care much about. Orange wreaks havoc with them!
But we are working it out – thanks to great editors like Tad Newberry, that is.
