Our PH in Botswana said that military camo is banned, but 'designer' camo you use for hunting is okay for wear. So who's right? I dunno

Dee I shall ask one of the Defence force Generals for clarity - my opinion is that it has been so long since we hunted on public land they may have relaxed the rules some.

Olive green is my Botswana hunting color of choice- khaki is too light and I get confused with a photographic tourist!

I travel throuhh Botswana a lot . I almost always wear regular hunting camo T shirt . Have never had an issue . I do have to say then normally with regular shorts .

BDF can be difficult so to be on safe side rather go with regular green or dark Khaki as advised by your outfitter.

Happy Hunting !

Ok Dee so it seems like the Staus Quo no longer have a problem with hunting camo so long as it’s not military issue and particularly not if your “hunting” rifle is an RPG or AK 47 and your “PH” goes by the name of Comandante and your hunting buddies are all called comrades. And leave the red Beret at home.

LOL, well that's great to hear, appreciate it. I'll leave my USMC BDU's at home then and since we bow hunt, no worries on them being mistaken for military weapons.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
