I see your point bowriter. This doe was not on public land or accustomed to being hunted. On public land I always wear camo but then I wonder, isn't camo what the deer are trained to be afraid of? Maybe just dull natural solid colors so your movement is less noticed. I don't know, I will still wear camo most of the time because I have it and it makes me feel les visible, but in some cases I'm fine with jeans and a T shirt.

for yall waiting on pics, I will post the story here shortly.

Catman-the best camo any of us can ever wear is no movement. Good camo lets you get away with a little movement. Movement is what deer see. Once deer get spooky as they do later in the season even on the best of private ground, a little movement sends them somewhere else.

The brand of camo, except for two, does not matter. The type of camo does. Two camo brands (maybe more that I am not aware of) make a type that is better than the rest at allowing slight movement.

In all cases, IMO a face mask and gloves are madatory. That is what moves the most.

I usually use a facemask but no gloves until it gets cold... but once it's later in the season when I would need them more, it's plenty cold enough for me to need gloves (hands lose circulation easily).

I know the movement is what they see. Only time I was picked out because the way I looked, was by a turkey hen on public land. I had the mask, gloves, everything but she saw me sitting there frozen with my gun and knew exactly what was up.

Just curious - what are the two camos that are better than the rest?

ASAT Ultimate 3-D and one who imitates tham and I cannot for the life remember if it is Mossy Stump or Billy Jerdans brand. One of them has a leafy suit with a color comb. very similar to ASAT.
