And, then there is the garb..... blaze orange and camouflage. These are a real big deal. The blaze orange, of course, is to assure that other hunters don't mistake you for a deer. Believe me when I say that this has happened before (not sure how you can see a man and think he is a deer). One of these days, the deer are going to get smart and start wearing blaze orange caps on hunting morning (hmm, I wonder how hard it would be to attach one to a deer??). You can buy any clothing article you could possibly wear in either of these colors/patterns. Supposedly, the camouflage is meant to camouflage you from the deer seeing you (of course), so then, why can you buy trucks, lazyboys, and even prom dresses made of this pattern??? Truth be told, these are not just the colors of the hunter in his natural habitat, but these colors denote the rural citizen, the signal of the true redneck, the emblem of the free..... but you'll get that in a small town.
