How many of you wear camo other than hunting? Shirts? T shirts? Caps?

Best answer!!!!

But it's one of those framed up blinds with windows and a door that is insulated and with batteries you can run an a/c, heater, tv, DVD player. So the idea it to basically have the same amenities as at home but in a single room that you get to hunt out of!

Just hanging out I will occasionally wear a camo hat. Otherwise I only wear camo when hunting, and only then when hunting something from which I am trying to hide. For example, wearing camo while hunting quail or pheasant is unacceptable - that's bad form old boy, bad form all around.

My cousin showed up to a family function in one of those game guard shirts that is a solid color with a small amount of camo on the shoulder. I asked him if he wore it to church. He said; "ya, I'm just easing them into it. By this time next year I'll be able to wear camo head to toe and no one will think anything of it." Aside from caps I don't really ever wear it outside hunting. Mostly because I'm a mix and match guy, and fairly tall, so none of mine fits that well or looks presentable.

I grab whatever hat is near me, I have about 5 I rotate through and one is camo so occasionally my hat.

Winter time occasionally my can jacket, same thing just depends what's closer when in walking out the door or what I left in the truck the day before

I do wear camo Crocs to work sometimes. I wear scrubs so we all look the same but surprisingly alot of people notice the ugly camo Crocs and say something

Shirts/pants I don't unless I'm in a tree hunting

Thank you for your service.

Like many others have said, camo hat occasionally but not much else.
I do wear "fishing shirts" a lot more often than I get to go fishing.

I have a Sitka hat that is camo that I wear sometimes. But that's about it. I have some other shirts and things that have archery logos/brands on them I have received as gifts over the years but the hat is the only thing that is camo.

Exactly.... plus they are warm if I need them...some are cooler.... and usually are better built to withstand tears or rip on briars etc. It's really quite simple. I picture the folks that question it wearing their Affliction shirts with their blinged designer pocket flair legged blue jeans like a badge of non-camo honor in their rickety treestands made from a 2x6 in a tree.....but yes they are the better, tougher hunter

Blood, dirt and tears on camo gives it character. Blood or dirt or tears on their Affliction shirts has them scurrying to the mall to get another one

And for the record...I mostly wear black in my blacked out boxes....but my older waterfowl cold-weather clothes, if I need them, are camo. I mean how ridiculous would it be if I said...."I gotta go buy some carhartts or more heavy black fleece in non camo colors because the fashion police think camo in a box blind is not within their hipster dress code?" Seriously.....I don't think folks think this through before they comment.

Camo hat daily.
When hunting,I give a lot of thought into what I wear depending on where I'm going to hunt.I mean after all,I'd hate to trigger some snowflake by wearing camo in a box blind.

I usually do on the rare occasions I actually use my box blind nowadays. It's mainly for two reasons: 1) most of my hunting is done outside a blind, so nearly all of my hunting clothes are cammo. And, I'm not buying special clothes just to sit in my box blind so you don't make fun of me online for wearing cammo in a blind.
2) I have been known on several occasions to get down from my blind to stalk an animal that I couldn't get a shot at from the blind.

To answer the OP's question, occasionally I'll wear a hat that has some cammo. Also, I have a particular fleece jacket that is really comfortable and good for a lot of our weather around here. So, I wear it fairly regularly when it's chilly outside.

Camo hat every once in a while that's about it.

I have worn camo shirts to the gym and you would have thought that was a sin based off the looks I got. I didn't see the big deal
