Yuppies and camo, a bad mix
By Will Maines

I READ IN a newspaper article a week or so ago that camouflage clothing is all the rage in upscale clothing stores across the United States. Sales have gone through the roof, but not necessarily in rural areas where you would expect it. In fact, the great boost in sales has been fueled by big city shoppers.

Having read the article the thought came to mind that there are two kinds of people who wear camo clothing; longtime hunters like myself and yuppies who wear it because, well, because it is the latest hot yuppie fad.

I can remember as a kid that there was virtually no camo clothing available, even in north Wisconsin where hunting was, and for some of us still is, a way of life.

If I wanted to wear camo hunting clothes I had to make them myself.
