Purpose:  Compare historical camo against controls.  Crumley's Trebark set off the revolution in hunter-specific camouflage back in the mid-Eighties. This was long before anyone had heard of UV-bright camo being a problem. Does Trebark have UV-brighteners?

In these two exposures, you should be able to see left to right in each shot:

bulletA piece of Crumley's Trebark Camo, purchased in 1986, used as a background
bulletThe blaze camo control
bulletThe  highly fluorescent hunter orange control
bulletThe treated strip in the middle of the hunter orange control

Description of #3 Test:  From left to right: 

  1. Control shot made with flash
  2. Same setup, except lit by Black Light-- notice how the blaze camo disappears. The hunter orange control and the UV-Killer-impregnated strip are both still glowing.  The Trebark glows a little, but so does the blaze camo-- the exposure is just a tad brighter in this photograph.


Conclusion:  The old piece of Trebark camo does not flouresce any more than the blaze camo control. Even with complete dousing and several minutes of drying, the strip of hunter orange still did not show any reduction in UV emittance. It remains every bit as bright.
