Re: Rifle Color Patterns Camo or otherwise, a question?
WEll for what is's worth, the critters around where we hunt come in two classes. Either they are totally blind and will walk dang near on top of you no matter what, or they will pick you out from halfway across the cotton patch while you completly camo'ed with the sun at your back.
As for what we use, mainly earthtone colors for paint jobs on the rifles, and our clothes are bottom land camo. My stuff is surplus and blends in perfectly in the woods, and in the open fields I generally just wear my brown carharts. Seem to blend right in with the dead grasses.
Movement will do you in more times than not, however, we have had deer as well as hogs come right up to within 20yds or less of us walking down the road. Really erks ya sometimes, cause they generally do it when your right in the middle of some sort of work you just can't stop. Or of course when you don't have a gun, heck they look like they are coming in for a hand out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
