Camouflage. It’s not just a song by Brad Paisley. It’s also an art form, a product, and an entire market segment of the approximately $890 million dollar hunting industry. Often times people seem to question the legitimacy of expensive camouflage sets from a multitude of amazing outdoor brands. Although grip and grin hunting photos, field shots, and close-ups of the equipment are a great way to show off the camouflage, it’s rare to get the perspective of camouflage in action from an animal’s perspective during an actual hunt.
This video from The Hunting Public shows bow hunter Ted Miller showing off just how effective good camouflage can be at keeping you warm, concealing your hunts, and putting meat in the freezer. It also shows the art form of camouflage, as Miller limits his movements and coordinates his motion while the buck has his back turned to him. It also looks like this ole warrior of a buck might have also lost an eye in a scrap with another big buck during the rut. It’s a tasteful video though, as it’s clear this buck’s next step is probably above this guy’s fireplace. Steaks, burgers, sausage, chili, jerky, goetta, and whatever else you can do with venison, on the way. That’s a great rack for the trophy room too.
