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.
