The only camo I own is for hunting, so I keep it seperate from the rest.  There is nothing wrong about doing it, I just don't
What about wearing "hunter orange" ??

I'll wear some, even to social things except when I know a particular person or two will be around. They actually aren't trying to be offensive. It just comes to them naturally. [8D]

I've got a couple of nice shirts with just some camo trim I'm very proud to wear.

My clothing I currently use for hunting almost never is on outside the hunting woods. My 'retired' rain gear gets out in public the most often lately 'cause it's been wet.

I daily wear a Swiss Army camo cap. Does that make me a neutral?
 
Actually I get a lot of compliments from women who like it. I wouldn't compare the action to wearing "AXE", but I like it.

I have a few shirts I don't hunt in that I wear.  My hats rotate between my Detroit Red Wings hat, a camo hat, or my Michigan Bow Hunters hat.  I even have a camo cowboy hat I wear on occasion.  [:)]

I am glad no one seems to care what the antis think.  Maybe it goes with out mentioning, but I was surprised no one has brought up negative impression on non hunters.  I am referring to wearing camo or decals on your car/truck and your actions.   Example would be acting obnoxious or cutting someone off, while proudly displaying that your a hunter.   Just something to think about.  Personally I drive like a grandpa anyway.  I also don't buy beer when I am wearing camo... why?  Its one of those things... hunters seem to have a drunk redneck view by many and I don't like to add to that image. 

To each there own. Hope everyone has a safe and successful deer season!

No. My camo is for hunting. As far as older camo goes, I wear it into the woods until it is worn out, then I chuck it.
Like many have said, it's just to expensive to have to replace.

I only wear camo when I hunt, otherwise you will not catch me in camo. Could be that I spent 8 years in the active army, that could have something to do with it. If you had to wear camo 365 for 8 years, it would not be your favorite color either.

Hunting isn't a matter of Life or Death
Its MUCH more important than that!

I rarely wear camo in public, but I do proudly wear Buck Wear shirts in public, bow hunter belt and camo ballcap as needed. If it is nasty wet out I will have my back up camo boots on. But my coats, pants and shirts are mainly hunting only, due to costs.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

A buddy of mine from Alabama had a "Camo Wedding" back in 2006. Notice the shotgun shell in the center of the bride's bouquet. I believe that's carrying it further than I'd care to go.
