Do you wear camo

I was wondering how many that do field work wear camo. I did not for a long time and decided to see if I wore camo I would be harder to see and possibly have better luck getting a visual encounter. I just have the feeling that they might think someone wearing camo is a hunter and dangerous. What are your feelings on this?

I think if you're there, and they're there, they're gonna know you're there no matter what you're wearing, unless you find a place to hole up early and plan to sit there quietly for a few hours to stake out the place.

I do wear camo a lot, but mostly because it hides the dirt easily and I don't feel like I'm ruining my good clothes that way!

My best encounter I was wearing pink. They had to smell me before they saw me. I could not see anything through the brush that was between us. The wind was at my back blowing towards them so they must have smelled me first. I can imagine that we smell like the cosmetic department at a department store to them. Humans have lost their ability to smell because we are bombarded with strong human made scents. Nearly everything we use is scented now.

I don't think there's any sense in wearing camo, the big fellows are probably aware of your prescence whether it's by sight, sound or smell. I definitely wear orange so someone won't mistake me for anything else.

Keilder doesn't wear camo either BTW.

He goes commando.

Keilder goes commando? :Jawdrop: Never thought of that approach. Then again a local girl did that and has never been seen again up North of me. I did some searching for her. Sad story.

Those pink camo pants are cute. I have a hat to match actually. Sure would like to know if BF are color blind. With such good night vision they very well might be.

My hair was about the same color as keilder's beard so I have always tried to wear pink or orange or purple so I wouldn't accidentally get shot by some yahoo.

People start talking about "Going Commando" and I get shivers of terror running up and down my spine. There's just some places in this country you don't want to "Go Commando" especially if you hear banjo music and men squealing like pigs! Males wearing "PINK" in those same locations is also probably not advisable.

Speaking of Commando, from personal experience don't bare your bottom to a watching male BF! Check the wood line first.

If that had not been the purpose for my bare bottom, I would have wet myself when the watching BF let loose with a very gorilla like chest thumping behind me. I had never heard of such a thing but a woman researcher in BC said the same thing happened to her once. And a friend of hers in California reported something similar. I do not know if the act of relieving oneself in their presence is the issue or they interpret that act as "presentation" like many apes do. Needless to say it really scared me. I had no idea one was even around.

I have to blame it on diet soda. I drank one on my way out to do field work and really had to go when I got there. One would not think I had anything to worry about where I parked my car on a county road. I was more worried about someone seeing me while driving by so I had my back to the woods. Anyway like you say, not a good idea to do it intentionally if you know one is watching. Unless you are trying to get a reaction. Sometimes I wonder if we try to much to be nice and friends and do not anything to provoke them. Then again that could be dangerous. We really do not know much about them at all.

Looks like me after 4 beers and a Redbull...

Intersesting observation Hikergirl, I've sometimes wondered if female or male anatomy (female more than male) triggers a response in BF's, this is not the first account of human females encountering male BF's and there is an "aggresive macho" resonse.

BTW can someone change Hikergirl's title from Advanced Member to "Cheeky" please?

Susan? ;)

Cheeky huh?

I heard a report about a male human who got up one dark night while camping, walked away from his tent, and nearly peed on a bigfoot standing near a tree in the dark. The bigfoot let out a big roar. Most male animals have some sort of marking behavior. Perhaps BF does too?

You don't know how funny my title is with that change. I heard through the grapevine that one of the neighbor men after seeing me bent over all the time in the yard weeding the beds, now calls me cheeks. Talk about making me self conscious! And now there is this!
