Default Dumb camo sayings

So it seems like every time I go hunting I end up in a store and some one has to say something about the camo like they have never seen anyone in camo before, I always get the "you going hunting" and I say nope why would you think I was going hunting?? I also love the look on peoples face when they say to you "ooo I almost didn't see you there", like they were the first one to make that up. Man it gets old but what can you do with non hunters , so those are the 2 I hear the most when I am wearing camo what sayings have you guy's heard the most???

A buddy and I were headed archery elk hunting and we stopped for gas and food. We walk into the gas station in full camo, and the girl working looks at us and says, "You guys going fishing?"

Another buddy and I went into Applebees after deer hunting. Again, full camo, and the waitress asks if we went hunting. I told her, "Nope. We just don't like people to see us."

To be fair I see a lot of guys wearing camo while fishing and packing a gun.

Always cracked me up guys fishing in camo and from boats too. I realize that they're wearing it cause it's probably their best outdoor gear but it makes me grin anyhow.

My favorite was we walked in to a store all camo'd out with face paint and all. Girl at store says "you guys hunting?"

I say, "No, we're in a rock band."

She wasn't sure what to say or do so she just stood there for a while waiting for me to smile or something. Which I finally did. It was priceless.

I got the " I almost didn't see you there" a few days ago while in Joe's. I ignored him but I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut.

What would one expect, as the dum arse was probably in buying a sports bra for his wife...

Maybe she was trying to flirt with you. Could be you were on the wrong hunt.

Haha. My girlfriend always says that too, it cracks me up. The meat in the freezer is from the deer I caught. I also catch birds and elk and... I love it.

I always get the camo saying "Oh all I saw was a floating head"

Buddies and I will joke in the boat about the driverless boat trolling over there. Usually there would be 2 or 3 guys in full camo.

I can third that "catch" remark about hunting too. My wife asks me all the time if I caught any ducks today... I'll say "ya I caught them and put them in a neck leash."

Sure we get lots of comments, funny looks and pleanty of dumb questions, by really stupid people no doubt. I try to be polite and answer the questions thought since it could be the first/only in person expereince this person might have with a hunter and regardless they are likely going to be a voter too. Sure it would feel better to fire off a funny retorte, but taking the highroad helps me as a hunter in the long run.

I heard more goofy questions in Portland than here in Pendleton. And that "catch anything?" query has been around at least as long as the 40 years I've been hunting. Gotta be nice tho'--they are voters, after all, and not likely outdoorsman.

Funny . . eventhough, over the last several years, I've done very little fishing at all and even when she knows I've been out hunting, my grown daughter always asks if I caught anything. I suspect many know better but, if they are non-hunters but not necessarily anti-hunters, that question is at a better comfort-level for them than "did you kill anything." We all know the better question may be "'any luck", etc.

This is funny but, Headhunter makes a very good point. Maybe I'm wrong but, I suspect, an anti-hunter isn't going to ask that kind of question. So, you're likely being approached by (my ) a non-hunter that isn't necessarily anti-hunting . . . the exact folks we hunters would like to engage. Don

That's what I always say when someone asks me if I caught anything while hunting. "Nope, I tried, but you wouldn't believe how FAST those little buggers are..."

I usually get this Then I give 'em this and they either get it, or walk away still confused

I wore camo clothing in the Military because it was required, I wear camo clothing both hunt-in and fish-in because its the best cold weather gear I own and it keeps me warm and dry. I never really cared about it from the fashion statement point of view.

Usually, one time a year, my school has dress up day of some sort or another. I put on my camo and a few school legal hunting accessories.

Inevitably, some student says: "Hey, Army man!"

Some buddies and I headed up the Santiam goofing off in the snow, we all had camo jackets on because they were our warmest coats, we stopped and talked to a guy and he asked if we were up there training with the army for cold weather combat.

Just tell him it's not a training excersize- that will keep him guessing for a while and it's the truth- lol.

A little off the subject
A number of years ago TRI-MET buses were orange and the people who worked in the bus yards moving buses around, fueling them and sweeping them wore of all things orange coveralls so they would be seen and be safe

Careful who you're wise craking back too .... do it with a smile and ask if they like hunting. They may be the local land owner that is just trying to start up a friendly conversation. Those talks lead to access!!!!!!!

I don't think it's really fair to laugh at guys wearing camo in a boat
I have known several guys who went in my boat that way and it was a money thing the only really warm clothes they could afford were camo so they could go hunting too
And yes some people ask really stupid questions just consider the source and be nice to your fellow earthling

Why is it such a big deal that people wear camo in boats? Are you going skiing everytime you wear your ski coat? Are you really heading out the door to cross train when you put those shoes on? Not everyone can afford a separate article of clothing for each special event, we just wear what we have to make sure our experience is comfortable and enjoyable.

If you think that's bad, I stopped to fill up my truck with my with my ACU uniform on. The guy asked if my buddy and I were going hunting. Nope just didn't want anyone to see us. Here's your sign!

ACU the world's worst camouflage.

You can always reply to the "you going hunting?" with "I'm going to church!"
but I also like the rock star reply too.

She wasn't sure what to say or do so she just stood there for a while waiting for me to smile or something. Which I finally did. It was priceless.

I have been reading this thread for a while and apparently it has affected me unconsiously. I put on a sport coat today to go to the boat show.

Felt totally out of place!

I was deer hunting this last season, and stopped at a store to fuel up. We all had full camo and orange vests on, (I know it's silly to wear camo with orange vests, but I don't want to buy orange pants and shirts, so I go with what I have) a guy in the store walked up and asked if we are fishing, I said no we're hunting. He looked at me and said oh thats why you have the orange vests on.

I wanted to say, didn't you get the new rules about fishermans safety orange.

BTW I do wear a camo jacket in my boat. Maybe this year I will buy a blue one to match my boat

I always get a kick out of those arriving for hunting season several days in advance here in E.Oregon and have their camo on while grocery shopping...and I'm not talking coats! If they were scouting, ok, but they're setting up camp! Then there are those who start wearing their camo in July for each visit to the archery shop.

The best was a couple years back when I walked into the local Safeway a few days before bow season. I was buying some items for camp myself when I came around the bread aisle and there were two guys in ghilie suits!

Missed a 190 class muley at the thriftway in John Day, because i wasn't in camo while picking up a 6-pack. I could see if it was the bread or bakery section, but never thought i'd see him in the beverage aisle !!

Yep, you never know when that moment of truth will happen. I got a goose once on the ice cream and frozen foods isle......

Had a logger come up to me when I'd finished running a ridge, "So how's the hunting?" I said, "Not too good, took a couple sound shots and all I hit were twigs and leaves!"

I can't understand why he left in such a hurry
