The original e-mail was about Pennsylvanians, but the people in the Midwest feel the same way so I just generalized it.

In Michigan, not only is hunting opening day (Nov. 15) a religious holiday, it's also a religious experience. Grown men, sick, lame, etc. will get out of bed to go hunting . Stores close, kids are taken out of school, or the school closes for the day. What's up with that? And no, NEVER disturb a hunter.
In Michigan all hunters must wear orange vests, hats, etc. so there is no mistaking them for a deer. Uh huh.

Being on the receiving end of a hunter's shot one time, that's a good idea. It's not necessarily so they aren't mistaken for the game, but so they are more readily identifiable, so hopefully no one shoots in their direction at game.
