    I’m using Realtree AP HD right now, but I’ve also been impressed by Mossy Oak Tree stand. Does any manufacturer make a carbon version of Predator camo??

    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.

    My vote goes to Predator or Natural Gear. I like the Predator patterns, but I like the clothing selection for Natural Gear a lot better…..

    Of course my favorite piece of Camo hands down is my Seclusion Leafy Suite from Cabelas…. AP would look good in leafy cut as well.

    I use MO Breakup only because that is what I got a deal on.

    Predator or NatGear will be what I get from now on. I have some Predator snow camo I use for Coyote hunting and it works great. Any open pattern should work well though.

    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!! :shock: :D

    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”. [=}=]

    Realtree AP HD is the pattern I use the most.

    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 [=}=]
