Thread: Anyone else tiring of cammo/realtree?

    Anyone else tiring of cammo/realtree?

    At long last i have moved away from the "Johnny Kingdom" realtree and cammo clothing as it just looks too much poaching-bassa for me.. at Scone gamefair the dodgey looking guys all had it on and i think it looks intimidating but that may be what style these guys want... I have moved on to plain green from Fjallraven and Swedteam and find it doesn't freak the public out as much. I think plain green projects a more approachable look?

    Yep plain green or tweed patterns for me like you say at the game fairs you see the really dogdy dog men all in the real tree. Not saying all should be tarred with the same brush but its like everytime i see someone in doc martins i think of skin heads.

    I'll stick with 'realtree' so that the public don't see me in the first place!
    Mind you, I wouldn't wear it to a game fair!

    Agreed, plain green or tweed (gentleman's goretex) for me.

    Spend too much time in camo kit at work, wearing it stalking would be a bit much! Although i have worn combat trousers before because they are free and dry quickly, not because they make me look like..... a pair of combat trousers!

    I have some of everything, I try to match my requirements to the season / surroundings, for example on a bleached out stubble, I use an American version of a wetland duck shooter's pattern, seems to fool pigeon ok,Winter seems to suit the dark realtree stuff, & I have green Swanni's over Runnarkop also.

    I got to agree with Finbear, I use lots of diferent stuff depending on where I am going and the season/terrain. If I know I will be stopping in a public place (petrol station etc) I take a plain coloured 'civvie' jacket with me and put that on when I get out the car. If I'm in the field in full cammo I steer clear of the public access paths so no one sees me anyway.

    I also have some very light weight summer time realtree stuff I bought in the US which is a size too big for me and I slip this on over my normal clothes when I get on site. it has tiny holes in it that let the wind through so I don't get too hot with it on. It's small and light enough that I roll it all up and keep it under the car seat when not using it. Whilst in the US I also saw some realtree/cammo boiler suit things in the Bass Pro shop that I thought would be useful for just slipping on when on site but I had blown my budget by the time I saw them so never got to try them out

    Recently I have purchased some german flecktarn kit off fleabay and that is proving very good when out chasing the bunnies/squirrels and on Sunday I had a young roe buck browse his way to within about 15m of me whilst I lay in view at the side of a track watching him. He only clocked me because I tried to get my camera out my pocket. I've also had deer come all the way up to me whilst wearing plain green in similar situations. Maybe changing your style of stalking clothes at intervals could help keep the deer/quarry off guard, seems to be the case with the bunnies.

    Also got to agree that I wouldn't wear cammo gear to a game fair, I just can't see the benefit of doing it as you are amongst like minded people anyway - maybe they are the antis trying to blend in!
