With the blackbuck down it was time to get after the wild pigs. I had hunted wild pigs once before in California and never saw so much as a pig track. It was with much trepidation that I decided to give pigs another out-of-state attempt. I was worried my bad luck from California would follow me to Texas. I need not have worried. Toby Joe and his guide Kirk had things completely covered. Within less than an hour of arriving in the area where the wild pigs were supposed to reside, I was posing with my first wild pig kill. While a wild pig was never quite the dream a blackbuck was, it still was great to get my first one. The pig was a sow and killed with a 6mm-300WSM at a little over 200 yards. Score up another kill for the M2D camouflage and Toby Joe’s guiding skills. From that moment on, and through the next day we were pretty much constantly in pigs and shooting. It took me a while to get a boar, but I was happy that not once during the entire trip did I get busted by a pig seeing me while stalking in for the shot. I know it may sound like I’m gushing a little bit about this M2D camouflage but the stuff really works. It’s nice to know that my money was not spent in vain.
So just how good is this camouflage? Good enough that when the hunt was over the outfitter and all his guides wanted to know where I got it and how they could buy some for themselves. Just as a side note: On the last day of the hunt I decided to wear a different set of camouflage because my M2D was getting just a little ripe, so to speak. On the agenda were coyotes and wild pigs. Long story short, I never saw either. In fact, I didn’t see much of anything that day. Now I can’t say for sure switching camouflage made all the difference. I can honestly say that it was the only major change that I made as opposed to the previous days. If things continue the way they have so far this year, my M2D camouflage shirt just might become my new favorite “good-luck” hunting shirt. Judging by the photograph below it is a “really” lucky shirt!
Overall I am very impressed and pleased with my purchase and use of M2D camouflage. In regards to what is already available I really can’t complain with the exception of the short sleeves on my button-down shirt. The company has the light-weight options covered pretty well. I would like to see them offer an insulated jacket as an option to their parka, along with insulated water and wind proof pants or coveralls. It would also be fantastic if they could put this M2D camouflage pattern on Saddlecloth. The Saddlecloth material is the one and only material I have found that is durable and 100% burr and seed proof. It also works well with Goretex and other waterproof laminates.
M2D Camouflage appears to be a very progressive company and they are rapidly working to expand their offerings. In the near future one can expect water transfer for bows and rifles. A full line of fleece pants, jackets and vests. Plus Marathon seat covers and Camo Fusion for vinyl, truck wrapping, window coverings and more. It won’t be long and they will have just about every thing to cover the camouflage needs of most hunters.
