    Have used "camo" from Vietnam issue Woodland through Mossy Oak Brush.
    Nat Gear is the best I've tried as far as having "no lines"..At least to human eyes.
    All (including plain dull colors)seem to do the job, if I'm doing my part.

    Predator or Natural Gear The other commercially popular one are made to look good at arms length in the store. Check out your favorite Mossy Oak, realtree etc. at 25, 35,45 yards and compare with Nat Gear, you will suprised with the huge difference in concealment.

    I use a combo of Realtree APG and Mossy Oak Break Up and Treestand. I might give Mothwing a try this year.

    Designer camo is a fashion statement. All you really need is military woodland, something to break up the lines. I do have this mesh jump suit/over suit that really seems to work, look like a tree in it. It's 3D, little leaves all over it. Kinda neat. I paid a hundred bucks for it. It's really cool on a warm day, too, something that's important in south Texas. Sit or stand still in it in cover and the ducks and geese just seem to not know you exist. A mesh face cover is mandatory, but it came with a leafy head/face hood. I normally just use the mesh face cover on one of my boonie hats, though, a bit more convenient.

    I generally use old milsurp stuff just because it is cheap.

    I tried wearing a PETA t-shirt and some hippy sandals thinking that the deer would come to me as a friend. Just didn't work out for me.

    The only time you can be that I will wear camo is when I'm hunting turkeys, doves and ducks. I mix and match Mossy Oak Spring Folige, Treestand, Break-up, Grasslands, and the orginal Bottomland.

    The Mossy Oak home office is two miles from my house and can go there and buy the rejects seconds dirt cheap.

    But for deer and such camo isn't need. Think about about it! Came and a Hunter's Orange vest doesn't make a lot of sense!

    I killed more deer wearing Carhart Doublefaced jeans and a Carhart coat than anything else.

    Camo patterns are for attracting and bagging the hunter's wallet. I look at the features, quality and fit of the garment, and the camo pattern selection is secondary. If you want real camo, go ghillie or ghil-leaf.

    Woodland from the surplus store works here from April thru October. Closest I have ever had a deer and a turkey come to me, I was wearing jeans and a faded Polo brand golf shirt. I believe if you are in some kind of cover that breaks up your outline and sit still anything works. Now waterfowel on the other hand seem to decoy better if wearing something other than hunter orange. Edited to add: Uh, that would be me wearing something other than hunter orange not the duck.

    Ducks and geese have really good eyes. Good camo is necessary if you're not in a covered blind and I never am. Even on my tripod deer hunting, though, since I'm not inside a blind, I like to wear the leafy wear camo. I don't know, maybe it's psychological. But, I hunt deer mostly for meat. Waterfowl is my religion. :D

    An article I read in the NY Times concerning a scientific study about camo and what animals can see said the best camo was the dot or fleck type.

    Most animals detect movement best, and the fleck or dot camo seemed to have been least seen in movement.

    I bought a set of German army fleck camo Gortex pants and jacket from Sportsman's Guide based on that article. If nothing more I got a great set of rain gear for less than $50.
