Blue works as good as any color in the hunting woods. I'm pretty sure no one told the deer that they should be afraid of it.

Rooty, now you have me thinking of Blue Bayou by Roy Orbison, Norwegian Wood by the Beatles, and Blue by Luann Rymes. All goods songs though. ))

Gotta bring back the BLUE SUEDE's by ELVIS! ARROWS ARE LOOKING GREAT!

From: Bob Rowlands
Date: 10-Nov-17




Yeah, what Frisky said. Blue was a color they liked. I happen to like it myself too. I have looked for laundry blue to no avail. BTW I have used blue food coloring on shafts. Thinned the grain shows through more than in the photo above.

Batman, Carl Perkins wrote and sang Blue Suede Shoes before Elvis did his version of it. Carl's version is top notch any day, and I still like Elvis too.

"Blue works as good as any color in the hunting woods. I'm pretty sure no one told the deer that they should be afraid of it."

George, your not going to break down a perfectly good superstition with facts.

'specialy when the facts are erroneous! :)

I have a bag full of blue nocks. Gonna count em up and put them on the trade topic.

"Deer are essentially red-green color blind like some humans. Their color vision is limited to the short [blue] and middle [green] wavelength colors. As a result, deer "likely" can distinguish blue from red, but not green from red, or orange from red."

There is nothing in that "fact" that states a deer can actually define blue as a danger, or as something unusual. The best thing we can expect is they may notice it more quickly in movement, but even that is scientific conjecture. The main fact is, we know what the deer's eye is made up of, but we don't know how they see with those eyes. They just 'likely' know that blue isn't red, so lets see what can be extrapolated from that.

Do it lol

I subscribe to the idea that they have strong UV receptors. Therefore they see Blue and other colors with strong UV emissions as aglow. Other things that are highly reflective of UV are clothing items washed with typical laundry soap with brighteners in them.

If you have a UV light then try using it in a dark room on various clothing items. Blue items and white items light right up.

As far as actual field experience goes I had a lead cow glance at me in blue jeans and immediately spin around and take the herd in the opposite direction. Everything else was perfect. Wind, light, everything.

Is it so? There's not as much science on this as we may think.

For me, It's kinda like that banana on the boat thing. Very very bad luck!
