Old School Camoflauge Hunting

Postby A_Winnie » Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:42 am

Was thinking of duck hunting some corn fields in Old School camouflage. Has anyone ever does this? Does it work? do you think it'll work? looking for second opinions?

Will you not be in some type of blind that will conceal you?

Wasn't planning on it I have that old school camo that is 4 shades of brown and I would think with some corn stalks on top of me as natural cover that would conceal me enough.

Worked in beans, too, back when the "layout" was Mother Earth with some stubble scattered over you:

It's always movement that breaks your cover. You'll be fine

Cripe I use it every weekend without a problem. Have been doing it for 25 yrs with no blind. Works like a charm......

Yeah I'll probably start using it because along with the old jacket and Jones hat I also have a pair of old cabelas coveralls that will be very warm in late season

I got the old Herters parka, wader jacket, bibs, and hat that I bought at the Herters Store in Beaverdam, WI back in the late 1980's. Still works today. Members of my chapter of Waterfowl, USA just had an old timers duck hunt where we used all the old school clothing. Even went hardcore and used old Browning A5 shotguns from 1947 to 1968. All standard weight and light 12's. Got a bunch of ducks that day. It literally rained ducks, redheads, bluebills, and buffies. Great fun! Try it and relive those memories of another day and time of waterfowling. later, dawg :bow: :hi: :welcome:
