My father always cautioned against wearing white and brown, and especially not ever to flip out a white handkerchief, as it looks very much like the tail of a departing white tail deer. blaze orange was not commonly worn in the 60's, so it was always something red, like my red wool jacket (that I still have, though it fits tight now).
I had an uncle who wore a full blaze orange jump suit, something we had never seen before (or since). We thought he looked ridiculous, but he was certainly very visible from a long way off.
