Following on from my waterproof jacket thread, I thought I would post up my thoughts on today for discussion!!!!!
Ok now if you were too buy a new jacket would you opt for camo or not? And if camo which pattern?
Ive decided if I was to buy a camo waterproof it will be DPM, the reason for this is I personally thought these new hardwoods camos are too bright for forestry Stalking. Hang 1 on a Spruce walk away then look at it, we would be better conceled going out with a bright shirt on and waving a flag IMO. I also believe the best cloth for Stalking is Tweed but getting a good waterproof tweed isnt easy unless the Musto range is bought.
Now i believe camo is good for breaking up a solid outline but lets be honest are deers eye sight that good? Years ago before these new paterns came across the pond old Keepers would use either ex-army jackets, Tweeds jackets and Wax proofed jackets.
However if I was in mixed broad leaved woods then the hardwoods would be a go to, but I still believe the DPM would just be as good. Just as Ive Max-4 for wildfowling but again there is nowt wrong with DPM and Ive probably killed as many geese and ducks wearing DPM as i have wearing Max-4.
Has our sport been too Americanised? Lets face it our quarry hasnt involved into a race of super animals!!
Over to you, floors open to discussion.
