"going" wild - almost 4yo pooping outside

So my almost 4yo recently started holding his pee and poop to wait until he is outside then he will try to hide and pee. He recently added pooping in the outdoors! He's tried this in our yard, a friends yard, and at a public park. We do let him pee outside in certain conditions like camping, hiking, being too far from a potty in an emergency. But we have never let him poop outside (although he did one or twice when he was two - just took off his diaper when we were outside and squatted). I'm thinking this might be a privacy thing, but I really have no idea. Oh and he's been out of diapers for about a year. Anybody experience this? What did you do? Is this a regression of some sort?

My dd did this a couple times at that age. She played outside when our five dogs did so decided to try it out. She was very logical so I just told her people go potty inside and reread Everybody Poops.
