Too Much Camo?

As I was rootin’ through all of camouflage clothing today, gettin’ ready to open Nebraska’s Fall Wild Turkey Hunting Season this week, I got to thinkin’ … Can a guy or gal who loves to hunt really accumulate too much camo? C’mon, are you serious? As an avid outdoor enthusiast for many, many moons here in the Cornhusker State, I’ll tell you that you can never, ever have too much gear, especially camouflage clothing patterns for the various hunting seasons, right?

This past week I was chattin’ with Kit Hams, good friend and big game specialist/program manager at Game and Parks. Kit and I both agreed that what is so great about hunting is the process of it. Scouting, putting up trail cameras, sighting in your bow or firearm, and going over or adding to your gear list! In my case, amassing and sorting through camouflage apparel is part of that hunting process. Can you guess how many different camo patterns of mine are shown in the photo below?

Answer: 34, and that’s not my entire collection! What do you think about me having all of this camo? I need it because of Nebraska’s ever-changing seasons, weather patterns and foliage conditions, as well as the state’s wide variety of landscapes and habitats.

Are you buyin’ those reasons? One of the more interesting and crazy things about me that you should know is that I do not own a dress suit, not one, and I’m darned proud of it! You won’t see me in one, but you might see me in one of these kinds of suits, camo, of course, HA! Good hunting everyone, enjoy the process!
