The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is reminding hunters of the state's requirement for them to wear blaze orange in the field for safety reasons.

The commission requires hunters to wear at least 400 square inches of blaze orange on their head, chest and back when hunting this fall and winter. The requirement applies for:

- Hunting turkeys during the firearm deer season from November 10th-18th

- Hunting deer, antelope, elk or bighorn sheep with a firearm permit during the firearm season

- Hunting deer with archery equipment during the November firearm and December 26th-January 18th deer seasons

Hunter education coordinator Mike Streeter says the color is extremely visible to humans under most lighting conditions, which helps prevent accidental shootings.
