Time heals all wounds right?
Someone ought to start a thread of pics of camo through the years. For us newbies to the hunting world, I had no idea there was so many choices. Can you tell the decade by the camo?[;)]
You can sort of tell the time period by the camo. I still have some original trebark from the early 1980s though. It is faded some, but I use it now & then...especially scouting. I also have some mossy oak treestand coveralls made of early microfleece from when it first came out. It doesn't see the woods much anymore either.
My first camo duds were Vietnam-era field jacket & pants. They were much better than nothing. When I was in high school, I painted a brown canvas hunting coat with acrylic paints to look like cat tails and brown lilly pads for duck hunting. I walked about 60 yards from one of my hunting buddies and he totally lost sight of me. Kinda makes me wish I'd taken the idea and run with it. Shoulda, woulda, coulda.
