    I won’t even look at “box store camo” these days. You won’t find me in the woods without Predator Camo [=}=]

    Cabela’s Outfitter Camo and ASAT are at the top of the list as well.

    The only camo I would think of buying, besides ASAT, and Predator, would
    be Cabelas Outfitter Camo. [=}=]

    For early season I wear Real Tree AP.

    For Fall and Late season I wear Gamehide’s Naked North. This camo blends into all the conditions I hunt in WI, SD, ND & MN extremely well. No matter if I?m in a tree, ground rocks, or in the open country Naked North works. Hardwoods, MO Tree stand and Mathews ?Lost Camo? are great tree stand camo’s but lack when on the ground in the open country. Gamehides Naked North excels anywhere making it more versatile and my go to camo.

    If you don’t remain still camo of any type probaly won’t help you. I use Fusion 3D from Walmart and Natural gear. I came upon these two using a simple test. I had my kids hang several different camo T-shirts on trees and bushes in the yard. I then stepped outside to see which ones stood out and which were the most difficult to spot.

    I borrowed different camo types from my buddies to keep from going broke with this test. Predator is a great pattern but is 3 times the price of Fusion 3D.

    I use mossy oak new breakup.

    Lately however,I’ve noticed that MO looks like a big black blob with some white patches and brown leaves.I wish I would have went with realtree,as they acutally make a camo that matches the woods.I’m really tempeted to get the lost camo…I like the looks of the stuff.

    I’ve got a bunch, I usually pick up something when it hits the clearance section..

    Top picks in early fall is Predator Spring Green
    In MidFall it’s usually RT APHD or NatGear Tan with the pine sprigs in it.
    Lateseason it’s whatever keeps me warm. :^O Usually my Natgear 400 series parka/pants. This season it’ll probably be Beagle wool in MO.
    I’ve also got some Mothwing fall camo, and Wayne C’s Hybrid Vanish mesh tops and bottoms for warm temps. I like the looks of that Naked North stuff too – I just don’t care for the big jackets they make it in. I may pick up a vest if FF puts it on sale though…

    If I HAD to pick a big box store camo, my first pick would be the Wayne C stuff. To me what a highdef/distance haze camo should look like, and it works well at distance and close up. Next would be RT (Max1, AP, Max4 in that order) then MO (Brush, Treestand, Shadowgrass are the only ones I consider open enough to use).

    Predator, a modification of the classic “amoeba” (sp?) pattern that was designed by the military years ago, as well as ASAT and Outfitter use about the same idea – large countrasting shapes with similar hues to break up your outline. Natgear is the only one thats really different, to me anyway – and is closest to the new digital “noise” camo that everyone’s moving to.

    The problem with the non-boxstore camo is the lack of good materials and clothing cuts. It seems to me that the options for brandname clothing give the hunter a ton of availible choices, for almost all weather. The alternative camo clothing options leave a bit to be desired.

    Just sit still and keep something in front or behind you to break up your outline. Ive had deer walk right by me wearing Carhartt pants and a wool sweater.

    The camo, when it comes to deer atleast, is marketing hype. [=}=]
