Grabbing everyone’s attention and standing out from the crowd is a real challenge at Dallas Safari Club. After several hours walking the endless rows of antlers, fur and leather, everything starts to blend together and fade into the background. That is, until a brand new camouflage company (ironically) stood out and ca…
