Are there any regulations in california stating that you have to wear some form of hunter/blaze orange while hunting?

No, there aren't, but I would wear something to make you stand out. I would suggest just getting a blaze orange hat. Even that little hat will really stand out.

I just recently picked up a nice blaze orange Remington hat at Wal-mart for like $7.

No there is not. But I wear it to let every one know "hey I'm over here!"
Colorado and Wyoming require it.

Wearing an item of orange is a good idea for deer & pig hunting. It's a bad choice for hunting any type of birds, including duck, geese & turkey.

Evolution will take care of that, as deer wearing orange would be more likely to survive :)

It is proven fact that _some_ hunters shoot cows (thinking they see deer)....some hunters shoot orange things (thinking they see deer)
....some "hunters" shoot human figures because their mind is seeing "deer"...

I don't bother with orange....

just got back from a week up in the mt's...trying to get a deer.
not many buck tracks up there this year. a bit of bear and bobcat. lots of doe tracks.
but why would one want to let a critter know you are there, here in ca no reg for wearing said.
i pound the bush a lot and sit in the bush.. i do not want to be seen...
by anything.

:TFH:

When i'm out for big game i wear the orange beanie whenever the weather allows. I use one of those silly orange vests and strap it to my pack. Hopefully fellow hunters respect that. If not i'll either be waiting for them in Hell or returning fire if i can.

No animal, regardless of size and species is worth taking a bullet. Even if it's only an arm or leg wound, it'll be a looong ways out. I have a SPOT too, but you still gotta wait for the bird to pick you up.

deer dont wear orange.

That's what they want you to think! BTW, it's a good idea to leave the orange hat with antlers at home.

I don't wear orange to keep from being confused with a deer, I wear it so a guy shooting at a deer can see me if I'm on the other side of his target.

I recommend wearing it any time you are anywhere that people are hunting
