Do you wear camo outside of hunting?

Postby Ben Sobieck » Mon Jul 13, 2009 7:23 am

It can be a fashion statement ("Hey you, I'm a hunter and I ain't ashamed of it") or a product of necessity ("Shoot, I'm out of clean shirts"). Either way, some people wear camo outside of hunting. Are you one of them?

I have a camo fleece I wear most of the winter, not really trying to make a fashion statement, it's warm, light weight and comfortable.  I also wear my camo pants that are two faded to wear into the woods anymore, and most of the time during turkey season I will be wearing camo.

I'll wear my mossy oak ball cap occasionally, but beyond I try to keep the wear and tear on the hunting duds down to a minimum...its just too expensive to replace nowadays!

Other than a cap, no.
 
Like DeanoZ says, too expensive.  And why chance getting them all odored up with something that won't come out.

I also agree that it's just too expensive to wear my hunting gear outside of hunting. Generally other than hunting clothes I don't buy camo to wear.

I wear lots of camo when I'm not hunting...but it's never the same camo that I wear in the woods. I have camo sweatpants that I wear around the house and some camo shorts (bad idea to hunt in shorts) and I also have alot of old woodland camo that I wear for just knocking around. My wife calls me Camo Man. She says when I die, she's gonna quit working and open a sporting goods store to sell off all my stuff.

I wear a little camo when not hunting, but it's not the camo that I wear hunting.

For the first time in my career, I am with a company that does not find it socially acceptable to wear camo to work on casual days. I think I may have to find a new job.

Like others.
I wear camo outside of the woods but not my hunting camo.

I have UA camo workout shirts, long and short sleeve.
Hats.
Beanies.
Cargo shorts.
Cargo pants.
White camo, green camo.
It's actually a fashion statement (to non-hunters) in my "neck of the woods"

I think when people wear camo for everyday they tend to look like redneck dorks. We are trying hard enough to keep all our guns, ammo etc. without looking like the sterotypical part that all the conservative knuckleheads think we are.
