What color is your hunting pack?

What color would you choose for a day hunting pack? I mean for hogs and dear. They are color blind. I don't even plan to wear any camo. I was thinking black would be perfect because I can use it for hiking without scaring earth muffins in southern California. :D

I don't like to stand out and I can use it for other things. I might just get an OD green pack though.

Whats your opinion?

i have 2...my primary one is black. my other one is camo. i didn't necessarily want the camo, but the pack that happened to have all the features i wanted was camo'd... i guess when it comes to hunting gear i put very little thought into colors. i just use what is functional. 'course, i am real bad colorblind, too, which may explain why i put so little stock into colors...

Like Dakotasin, it doesn't really matter much to me, but mine is OD. It had everything I wanted in a small, light, quiet pack and nothing I didn't. And it's OD. My fiance took one look at it, snorted and referred to me as GI Joe for a week... :p

My main large pack is black and my small pack is a forrest green. I'd use any earth tone or black with out a problem I seldom wear camo.

Mine is Mossy Oak Breakup. I don't mind "standing out." In fact, I would revel in scaring California earth muffins. I might even paint my face just for added effect.

Currently camo. I have used green ones too. About the only thing I wouldn't use is a bright color, and only because I hunt turkeys too. Hate to switch all that junk between packs.

Mine is blaze orange. I liked the pack and bought it without regard to color.

Mine is camo, and my pack frame had a black frame, but I wrapped it in camo tape. I live in a place where camo is considered to be a "color," the same as blue denim, and you can see camo anytime, anyplace, anywhere, without anyone thinking that something unusual is going on. If they have a problem with the camo day pack, what do they think of the rifle?

Just an old plane camo. But I usually just use the many pockets my clothing has.

My daypack is OD, but my large Kelty is blue.

Mine is camo but when I wear it over my orange vest I am probably in violation of Missouri law. I hunt on my own farm so I don't think it is a problem.

It used to be grey. Then it was green. Now it's Mossy Oak. I used to use my school daypacks, but switched to camo after I left college :)
The new one holds a water bladder, which is nice for hikes in the mountains.
