    Related question for Hunters:

    Why is military camo different from hunters' camo? Seems like basic USGI woodland camo would be as good as anything in any forested area.

    The short answer is yes- as a kid I used surplus woodland camo for hunting. Due to the free market multiple companies have developed dozens of different camo patterns for hunting, any of which is more or less effective for the environment they were developed for. In my experience the type of camouflage worn is secondary to scent and movement control. But the right camouflage can give you the extra edge to get closer to your game.

    UV GLOW.

    Humans and deer see different. Any good hunting camo will not reflect UV light. Deer can pick up UV light alot better then humans. If its sunny and you are wearing UV reflective camo. You will most likely be seen. All my hunting camo is UV blocking. As long as i have been hunting, i noticed i would never be spotted by deer vs the 2 guys i go with that do not wear UV blocking camo.

    I've been hunting deer, elk, coyotes, etc for 25 years and used a lot of different camo patterns. I can say without a doubt that i have consistently gotten way closer to animals and avoided detection at close range while wearing leafy wear type camo, than anything else. The ability to break up the silhouette of your form does far more for concealment than the pattern of the camo, IMO. There is a reason ghillie suites are commonly used by snipers.

    That being said, i usually only wear my leafy wear camo when i'm bow hunting, muzzleloader hunting, or coyote hunting. If i'm rifle hunting deer or elk, and not planning on needing to get closer than 150 yards, i wear my Sitka gear or something similar, as it doesn't snag on surrounding brush as easily.

    Or go to my old fall back USGI woodland BDUs.

    I'm in Iowa so we get all seasons. Sometimes it seems like all 4 in one day. Anyhow, I really try not to overthink it. I have two ghillie suits. A snow one for winter, and a woodland one for pretty much any other time of the year.

    FirstLite camo tops, Kuhl khaki/brown pants is all I wear anymore unless its deep cold. If its deep cold I wear a Empire Boreal Wool shirt. For some reason gray green wool seems to blend in as good as any camo in the northern midwestern woods I hunt.
