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. [/quote:ccgfsj91]
Agreed. I’ve been using Mossy Oak Forest Floor for the last 5 years because of the ridiculous price i got on the set. It is definitely not a treestand camo, yet I have no problem taking deer every year from up in a tree. I’ve also had several deer walk under my 10 foot ladder stand (between the ladder and the tree), while wearing blaze orange during rifle season. The same day, i had a solid 9 pointer bed down not 35 yards in front of me on an open hillside. Once again, in blaze orange and only 10 feet up a ladder. Sit still, and it doesn’t matter a whole lot.
Early season, when the temps are up…I use Realtree AP.
It really doesnt matter to me. I guess I own a little bit of every RealTree Pattern that has ever been ( I still have a pair of bibs in RealTree Brown Leaf that I wear from time to time) along with the Mossy Oak ( my favorite quilted lined chamois shirt is in Fall Foilage) too. Ive even been known to mix and match!
Im such a renegade, I even run with scissors!!! Livin on the edge baby!!
I hope I dont offend. Im just carrying on, making light of the subject I guess I like MOBU the best. Like a friend in the industry told me…..”its all appealing on the shelf”.
I use AP and MOBU. I’d like to try Treestand for late season here.
Depends what I get a deal on. I pay more attention to the fabric and how lightweight/ quiet it is more so than pattern. I usually stick with lightweight for this time of year and medium weight when it cools down a bit. It’s 80’s here now.
As mentioned earlier here, You can wear plain clothes and have deer walk up to you. With that in mind, I think any pattern that you have confidence in is the best pattern. Just avoid being silhouetted against your background and watch your scent and wind.. JMHO
