      That shirt does a far better blend-in with the leaves than any commerical camo could.

      Camoflauge is a concept, not a pattern:D

      Its a good thing too, you look like the Grim Reaper sittn there. Would have scared them half to death.

      I was once bowhunting in the mountains of Southern Ca, during archery only season. Now bear in mind, I am clad in full camo, including a misquito net to keep the black flies at bay. I am sitting on a tree stump about 10ft from one trail and about 30ft from another, more frequently used trail.

      I hear leaves rustling and slowly turn, my head to see some Hispanic fellow walking along, RIFLE over his shoulder, swatting flies. He passes right in front of me on the 30ft trail. Never saw me. No brush around me at all. 5 min later here comes his buddy, but he takes the 10ft traiil. Same as the other guy. Rifle over his shoulder and he too is swatting flies. But unlike his buddy, he is actually looking around, a little. He keeps walking till he is literally right in front of me and casually looks my way. I look him dead in the eyes. He blooks away for a fraction of a second, then I thought he would jump out of his skin.

      he stuttered out a “hello” and I asked what he was hunting….after much thought, he finally muttered a nervous “robbit” or I guess he meant rabbit, but his accent was so thick thats what I assumed he said.

      feasible story right except his japenese wwII rifle is not an ideal rabbit gun, and we are over 7000ft up and in 20years of hunting those mountains I have never seen a rabbit that high up. I just nodded and looked at him like really?

      Off he goes, looking over his shoulder like hes getting away from a ghost. Of course I followed him and watched his and his buddy get into a mercedes and one of them pops his head and rifle out the ssun roof and away they go.

      The game warden got a chuckle out of my story when I called them. No way would he catch them, since I was unable to read the license plate and the closest warden was over an hour away.

      Like I said, good thing they didnt see you!
