Camouflage, Concealment and Coyotes

Quote:
The camouflage industry is flourishing. New patterns emerge every year. New materials become available and everyone has their favorite pattern or patterns. People get attached to their favorite camo patterns. It seems that critiquing someone's favorite camo pattern is akin to bad-mouthing their mother-you better be ready to fight! I love camouflage. It makes a statement. It shows our outdoor heritage. It makes us feel stealthier. And, proper camouflage actually does serve a purpose in the field by helping the hunter blend into their surroundings and breaking up the outline disguising the human form. Coyotes are amazing animals with some of the most acute senses of any animal. To take them consistently requires a hunter to do many things big and small correctly. Proper camouflage and concealment can help up the odds.Read More...

    Sooooo many patterns out there. All of it expensive if its good stuff. My outer layer is too dark when I leave this part of the country. If Santa doesn't come through-after the New Year I'm looking at additional coats and pants the grays are high on the list right now. Is there a color that travels well in your opinion?

    Although many patterns are pretty versatile, King's Desert Shadow may be one of the most versatile IMO--good shades/hues and reasonably open in pattern. Interestingly, it was far and away the most well represented camo at the World Coyote Calling Championships. It must work somrwhere. One nice thing about camo is that it doesn't get worn out or over used like e-callers and specific sounds. Animals don't start watching for a common camo pattern. It either fits or it doesn't.

    Well written article.

    The point made about potentially being skylined from an approaching predators perspective is a good one. That is the mistake I see made most often on setups. (not than I am a pro or anything)

    270S: I've also used the Dead Coyote T-shot in the shotgun and I used Federal UHD Coyote loads for the World's hunt a few weeks ago. As far as rifles, I usually carry a .204 Ruger loaded with 35 grain Bergers over Benchmark. My son is building me a medium weight .243AI that I'm going to try with the 65 grain V-max. For long range stuff we shoot fast-twist .243AI's with 105 A-maxes or Berger VLD's. (I hope I understood your question correctly.)
