    Just like the title says do you wear your bowhunting camo for other than strictly bow hunting?

    I wear my boots for a lot of things in the winter after hunting season is over. I will also wear my Under Armour base layers as well.

    Yes, I have camo clothing that I wear almost all the time. Generally because it's the warmest clothing I have so it's best suited for what I'm doing this time of year. Summer, not really...unless my truck seat covers count, lol.

    Not wearing camo as much wearing the camo, the stuff you buy for hunting? I have 3 sets, base layers down to smart wool socks, the only time they are worn is from the tent to the stand and I change out to track.

    I buy very few things specifically for hunting that I won't use at other times. I can't think of any clothing I buy that is hunting specific only.

    Camo stuff costs more. Why wear it to the hardware store?

    About the only thing I wear exclusively for hunting is my non-goretex archery outerwear. I really have no uses for it any other time. I do wear my weatherproof camo outerwear ice-fishing and playing in the snow with the kids. I wear my hat, gloves, socks,boots, base layers all the time in winter.

    Well if the question is whether we wear "camo" outside of hunting...never.

    I do wear one set of base layers occasionally when doing work outside when it's cold, but that's it.

    Negative...and contrary to what some think head to toe camo doesn't upgrade your hunter ability at outdoor banquets or shows. :)

    I don't wear my hunting clothing per se but I do wear camo outside of hunting season. My fav shorts are a pair of American eagle camo cargos

    My bowhunting camo is my bowhunting camo so no. I do use my boots for shed hunting, camera checks and scouting but that's it.

    My point is the contamination of the clothing from other activities. Then again I may have scent issues.
