Do you wear camo

I was wondering how many that do field work wear camo. I did not for a long time and decided to see if I wore camo I would be harder to see and possibly have better luck getting a visual encounter. I just have the feeling that they might think someone wearing camo is a hunter and dangerous. What are your feelings on this?

I think if you're there, and they're there, they're gonna know you're there no matter what you're wearing, unless you find a place to hole up early and plan to sit there quietly for a few hours to stake out the place.

I do wear camo a lot, but mostly because it hides the dirt easily and I don't feel like I'm ruining my good clothes that way!

My best encounter I was wearing pink. They had to smell me before they saw me. I could not see anything through the brush that was between us. The wind was at my back blowing towards them so they must have smelled me first. I can imagine that we smell like the cosmetic department at a department store to them. Humans have lost their ability to smell because we are bombarded with strong human made scents. Nearly everything we use is scented now.

I don't think there's any sense in wearing camo, the big fellows are probably aware of your prescence whether it's by sight, sound or smell. I definitely wear orange so someone won't mistake me for anything else.

Keilder doesn't wear camo either BTW.

He goes commando.

Keilder goes commando? :Jawdrop: Never thought of that approach. Then again a local girl did that and has never been seen again up North of me. I did some searching for her. Sad story.

Those pink camo pants are cute. I have a hat to match actually. Sure would like to know if BF are color blind. With such good night vision they very well might be.
