  • When do you wear camo? Anytime you're hunting? Never? Only for certain species or types of hunting? I generally only wear it for

    When do you wear camo? Anytime you're hunting? Never? Only for certain species or types of hunting? I generally only wear it for Turkeys, Coyotes, or bowhunting anything, but I have some camo items that just make sense to wear, whether I want the camo or not. I'll wear camo for waterfowl hunting, but that's pretty sparse for me. I wanna know what y'all think about when you should wear it and when you don't need it.

    I think it depends on how you're hunting. If you're in a treestand 15 ft. or more, I don't think you necessarily NEED to wear camo. If you're on the ground, you DEFINITELY need to wear your camo. I just like to get every advantage I can to keep deer from seeing me. I don't wear it for small game like squirrels and rabbits, though.

      I wear it all the time. ACUs mostly but seriously I wear my long sleeve cammo shirts in the fall just because, I don't have to be hunting. When I am hunting though usually a moss green pair of carhartts, a real tree LS shirt and a hat. thats about the extent of it for me. Bow hunting or turkey hunting (or when the misquitos are out) I'll wear gloves and a head net.

        I wear camo every day like it's going out of style. So, hunting is just a chance to wear more. Why would you want to turn this wonderful opportunity down?

          I wear camo for turkeys and when hunting predators, These two species are the only things that have decent eyesight. I see no need with deer since they have poor eyesight. I know people that have shot deer with bows and were wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. That's why I see no need for camo when hunting most herbivores

            I wear camo most of the time when hunting whitetail and turkey. Though just plain old subdued clothes should work just fine for deer. Arrowed a buck last year while I was wearing brown pants and a green sweatshirt (no time to shower and change after work). I think deer are more tuned in to movement and scent than most colors. I try to wear black when in my ground blind.

            I haven't tried to hunt Turkey in anything but modern camo. Friends were successful in woodland camo back in the early '80s. Pictures of old time turkey hunters don't show them in camo. I guess they just didn't know that they needed it.

              For the most part I only where it when going for predators, turkeys, and deer. I have worn a brown duct coat predator calling in grass and had just as good of luck because it blends in better.

                I never wear camo outside of hunting. I agree with above and say camo is over rated for deer hunting. Turkey on the other hand, you need a good camo pattern.

                  I wear camo anytime I hunt, but outside of hunting I think that wearing camo brands you as a moronic, under-educated, sister loving hick.

                    Generally Turkey and archery I'll get full camo’d out and for coyotes and other than archery a BDU field jacket does just fine with blue jeans
