come to a game at finch field u can smell what im talkin about. If your ghillie is attracting bugs, id suggest u stop washing it with mango tango detergent
lol (bit of an inside joke, my buddies girl washed his chest rig and bdu with mango tango crap and we could smell him 100meters away, and the bugs loved him lol)
Lol bet he'll never live that one down but I prefer coconut myself ;-) if my ghillie is good enough to make those jokes about I know I'm doing it right.
