MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Hunters in Wisconsin may soon be heading into the woods wearing bright pink clothing.

The state Assembly on Tuesday passed the measure that allows fluorescent pink to be worn while hunting. Current law requires at least half of the clothing that gun deer hunters wear above the waist to be blaze orange.

Bill backers say the measure will encourage more women to take up hunting, give hunters more clothing options and give apparel manufacturers a boost.

According to the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses, no state has legalized blaze pink for hunting clothing.

Wisconsin’s bill still has to pass the Senate and be signed by Gov. Scott Walker before becoming law. It passed the Assembly on a voice vote without debate.
