camo clothing for hunting deer

I want to buy a full set of camouflage clothing that will be good for deer hunting & have been checking out the stuff on a website.. Shooting supplies

Can someone suggest which clothing might be the best to get, including the best camouflage pattern?

Does what you're hunting matter when picking camouflage clothing, or is it more about the terrain you're in?

Thanks guys

Here is what I like and have used for years. To each his own though.

as far as camo goes, it depends on what you are doing with it. if you are bow hunting you need to match the terrain, but if you are sitting in a stand a couple hundred yards away go with the cheapest stuff you can find. match or not as long as it is earth tone you are good. heck a dark brown or green shirt or pants would be good.

Where are you hunting at? Are you hiking or sitting somewhere? Hot, cold,warm, do you need good water proof stuff? I would stay away from anything cotton to start with.

I wear the ASAT [all season all terrain] pattern for bow hunting, I have have several videos of deer looking straight at me from 15 yards and never spooked just walked away. Gun hunt is different, I wear what ever old camo i have in whatever pattern.

Re: camo clothing for hunting deer

I've taken a liking to Mossy Oak Treestand for both gun and bow hunting. With this pattern I've had Dad "disappear" from my view even when I knew where he was, other hunters walk right by him, and elk trot by never knowing he was there. I purchased a suit in this pattern after seeing all of that on a hunt in late 2010.

In addition, I don't wear any cotton anything when hunting, except for camo jeans when turkey hunting. It's not worth using for fall and winter hunting for a variety of reasons.
