It’s a cover up!
Dear Phill I saw an article recently where you’d added camo tape to a PCP that had a camo stock and scope already, and I think it looked great. How long did it take you and how much did the tape cost? Also, do you thing that it was worth all the effort? I’m not sure that our quarry can recognise a piece of metal as a threat, so what’s the point? TOM ROGERS Hello Tom I take your point and I guess that we’ll never know exactly what our quarry sees and how they react to it. However, I believe that the point of camouflage is to help us blend into the background so that we don’t attract attention of any kind. Sunshine reflecting off polished metal might just catch a pigeon’s eye and make it look our way, so our chance of a shot could be lost. It took me less than half an hour to add the tape to the rifle and I’d estimate that I used about £1.50 worth of materials, so it’s not too expensive to do. Ultimately, camouflage isn’t necessary, but if it helps even a little bit it’s worth the effort for me. Ed
The camo tape didn’t take long to apply and added to my confidence in the field
