    Unless something's changed, there's no rule against shoving your sleeves up above your elbows to expose more than just your hands or even using both exposed forearms together, just as one might when having to handle on genuinely long blinds while hunting.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    A roll of toilet paper is a great handling aid when actually duck hunting. Stays in my blind bag.

    If you get worried that your dog can't see you at a hunt test, simply buy one of the handlers jackets. They conveniently are made out of camo patterns that don't match any background on this earth.

    Fishduck, sounds like something Drunkenpoacher could use.

    Any experienced waterfowl hunter will agree, the value of a roll of TP in a duck blind cannot be overstated.

    I don't understand the change in policy because I always thought camo was mandatory anyway, unless the policy has been slipping because handlers want to make sure their dogs see them when handling, and when really hunting hunters do change attire so the dogs see them, why should the camo culture be more important than being fair to the dog should be of primary importance?

    It ain’t about the dogs, unfortunately. Some folks will always find something unimportant to focus on.

    That's what it sounds like to me, Camofest and not dog work with live ducks. Sorry.

    Like the ones armed with rangefinders to make sure no mark or blind is a yard to long.

    Pretty simple work-around. Wear a dark timber camo pattern if the background is grass or light colored. If you're in front of a wall of dark cedars, wear a light marsh camo.
