This Saturday, Fort Campbell will host one of the nation’s premier bow hunters and the Army officer who designed the digital camouflage pattern now used by soldiers and Marines across the world.

The event, put on by Gore Optifade, is being held to show avid hunters the next generation in hunting camouflage, which incorporates the digital pattern into hunting gear.


Retired Lt. Col. Tim O’Neil will be on hand to talk about the new pattern, along with Warren Strickland, a well-known bow hunter, who will be present for a meet and greet.

The event is Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Eagles Rest Pavilion, located at 6645 101st Airborne Division Road.

There is no cost to attend.

    Just speaking for myself the Gore-Optifade concealment pattern doesn’t look too effective in this photo! I’m not very impressed with any of the digital camo patterns.

    Not another camo pattern! I have an idea use this
    as a pattern $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$….

    I think the digital camo thing has gotten out of
    hand. When was the last time you saw a square leaf
    blowing in the breeze? I think multi-cam or the old woodland is fine.
