    The one with the bobcat is actually my first.

    The secret is layering, no discernible "edges", no dramatic colors.

    apply your lightest color first as a base, and then lightly layer your darker colors.

    Without looking at it real close you can't see that I use a camo net that is honeycombed as a stencil for the darker colors.

    Good camo is blending with nature, not trying to stand out.
