Using camouflage nets out in the field is a popular way of increasing your chances of success on a hunt. They provide an effective means of concealing heavy equipment on those occasions when you do not want to drag around numerous weighty bags. This article will provide you with a number of tips and tricks on using camouflage nets to increase your chances of success.
1. Find the Right Camouflage Net for you.
Find a camouflage net that is suited to your particular style of hunting and the area and surroundings in which you usually hunt. Pick a camouflage net that reflects the environment in which you will be using it, you don’t want your purchase sticking out like a sore thumb because it doesn’t match the type of foliage around you.
Look to big names in the hunting world for durable and well-performing equipment. Jack Pyke in Hertfordshire provides equipment and field sports clothing of a high quality. Their range of camouflage nets is available online and offer good value for a superior product.
2. Prepare your Camouflage Netting.
Preparing your new camouflage netting for use in the field for the first time will make a considerable difference to how effectively it functions. Make sure you air the netting outside for a good period of time to rid it of any chemical scents used in production, as these may put you at a distinct disadvantage.
3. Learn How to Hang Your Camouflage Netting.
Knowing how to hang your camouflage netting will make it all that more effective. Having the leaf cuts lying horizontally will offer a more natural effect when used in the proper surroundings. Camouflage nets are used to break the sharp outlines of man-made objects. Remember this when setting up your netting.
Use any natural light effectively, the less natural light shining from behind you the better. A dark and shady background will provide greater camouflage and enhance the effects of your netting.
4. Match your Clothes and Camouflage.
It is worth thinking about making alterations to your hunting equipment and clothing depending on how well they work with the type of camouflage netting you have purchased. Try to avoid equipment that appears to clash with, or negate the effects of, your camouflage netting.
Camouflage netting is usually lightweight enough that it does not make too much of a difference to the overall weight of your pack, but it may take up a little space. Take this into consideration when packing for a hunting trip.
5. Storage of Your Camouflage Netting.
Try not to store your camouflage in a compressed state; hanging it will keep it in much better condition in the long run. If you do have to fit it into a small space, try to remove it and air it out regularly. Compressed storage will result in the disruption of the natural effects of your camouflage netting. Make sure your netting is free of damp and any vegetation to ensure a long and lasting period of use.
