So, nowadays everything for the hunter comes in camo from clothes to guns to atv's, GPS's, binos, scopes, spotters, rangefinders, knives and all that other little stuff that you wish was florescent orange because when you sat it down you never could find it again! Heck, they probably even make camo TP!
You'd think by looking at all this stuff that it's a miracle hunters like my grandad ever even got a shot at a deer or a duck!
So what's your opinion on all this camo garb? Specifically clothing? I think in some cases it can be a help but even then usually because as a hunter you made a mistake like didn't stay in the brush and walked in to the open, or just plain moved when you needed to be absolutely still.
For years I still hunted for whitetail and muleys in the mountains of Montana with green wool pants, a bright orange jacket and a red plad Elmer Fud hat. I shot my share of deer at less than 100 yards and had many walk right be me. Even had a few almost run me over and had to actually jump out of the way!! For duck hunting anything gray or tan worked just fine. I've plucked lots of ducks too.
So, is it worth the extra 500 bucks for the camo Rhino that you can't find in the brush! (I'll take a bright red one thank you and spend the 5 bills on some good tires!) Or the extra 20 bucks for the camo rangefinder or knife that you'll never find if you ever set it down!
Or how about the extra 50 bucks for the camo sporthill pants instead of the black ones?!
Just a few ramblings.....
