Whats wrong with the way he is dressed? Is it a fashion thing for you guys? Does he need a tie or something? Or is it because he is not in camo? Camo is not necessary for hunting anything. My son in law killed a nice 9 point with his bow this year wearing a blue sweatshirt.

I don't even own camo hunting clothes. Guess we wouldn't pass the dress code at you guys camp.

If that guy shoots the monster buck I've been hunting all bow season, it will be because he was in the right place at the right time.

Couldn't agree more. That is the exact point of the picture.

Some will be offended by the OP but I think it’s pretty funny. I looked the part this bow season but only have a miserable tree stand selfie to show for it . I was freezing that day ! Meanwhile I saw countless success pictures this season of all ages . From little kids to women in their 70’s with bucks I would of shot in a heartbeat. I swear one kid was posing with a crossbow that was as big as he was. All you can do is laugh. I will say one thing and that is never judge a book by its cover. Just because a guy doesn’t look the part doesn’t mean he is not a great hunter and the opposite could be said for some individuals sporting the latest and greatest gear .

All hunting and even fishing is like that. You can be the most prepared guy in the woods but if the weather conditions and winds are not so good it will effect your hunt. Right time and place, and maybe a little luck as well.

Yeah, no matter how good you think you are, luck still plays a major role. As a matter of fact, some of the all time worse hunters I know have quite a bit of cash wrapped up in hunting gear. All the money in the world can't fix stupid.
