Purely hypothetical question, with a bit of background experience at the wrong end of the muzzle, behind it..

In my youth in Cadets back in the dark ages, we as a group were having a survival/evasion and escape exercise in the woods. This was during hunting season. We ended up having rounds whizzing close overhead, aimed at or near us. We weren't wearing hi-viz clothing at all .. rather, grubby combats instead.

We caught up with the hunters in question later - they claimed they didn't see 'people'.. but were shooting at what they thought were a group of deer. Those deer might well have been us in the distance.

Would crawling or otherwise acting 'stealthy' through the woods, without hi-viz clothing, not put you at inordinate risk during the hunt season, or has hunter safety improved that much in intervening years?
