    Now, I do like Cabela's, somewhat.  I'd prefer shopping locally, but when the markup is along the lines of 200% (as it has been at the only locally-owned business that carries anything beyond the little hunting gear Wal-Mart carries), I'll special-order.  Hopefully a big change on that front, though, a new gun shop/range just opened, I'll see how they work out.

    I've never seen the need for camo, either, except as fashion statement.  If you go out and sit still, most animals will pretty quickly forget you're there, if they noticed in the first place.  

    We have, in the past, leased out to dove hunters, and still sometimes invite some few friends and business associated to hunt on our place.  We even allowed some business associates to bring some of their investors out a couple of years -- real moneyed individuals.  My best bet is that their hunting clothes cost more than my shotgun, and if they got a dozen birds between 'em all, I'd be shocked.

    Me?  I own a grand total of two camo baseball caps because they were freebies, advertising companies friends work for, and a couple of old pairs of camo pants picked up at the Army/Navy store, 'cuz they're comfy.

    That's not to say I don't buy some useless stuff now and then, it's just not so much in the hunting line.  :-)
