i'm in the high desert and hunt in military six color (chocolate chip or desert storm) desert cammies. my buddy hunts in the three color desert cammies. i was reading varmint al's page and it inspired me to paint my rifle. i went to wallie world and got some of that "stone" paint and now my rifle matches the desert! i will send pictures after the final touches!
I have to say I have all kinds of cammo. Just for the fact that there are all kinds of colors in the land I hunt ,so I can dress in what ever the color of the terain looks like. Call me a nut, my son thinks it's the cooliest thing to have all that cammo. on the other hand my wife thinks I'm nuts.........LOL
I use all different patterns (as I tend to hunt here and back in TX). Out here on Camp Pendleton, Advantage timber works well, but out around Lake Morena when hunting for predators I've used a guille suit. LOL! Should've seen the look on Wildbirdhunters face when I pulled that thing out. Great for winter hunting, but I dread the summer with that thing....
I use military woodland, 3 and 6 color desert and realtree extra brown. Just depends on where I go. But lately I've been using the real tree more often. It seems to work good in all the different terrain I hunt.
Yeah, those two quail hunters looked like their eyes were gonna pop out of their heads when I came out from under that bush. ROTFLMAO! "Look! That bush is moving! Oh crap! That guys been there the whole time we were talking to this guy!" :jaw-drop: Ha, ha, ha! A guille suit definitely works! :target:
I like the Realtree grey as well. Blends well in coastal, pines, and dry manzanita. Always carry the woodland as a backup (eg: colder weather or a dry set).
A few years ago we were hitting squirrels on Pendleton. My two partners were off together about 150yds from me. First was in full desert-6, the other in woodland over tan khakis. Against the dirt and dry scrub hills, the woodland combo blended better than the all-desert pattern. The key was a distinct lack of shade needed to subdue the differences in color and pattern.
i hunt in the mountains of south western virginia and prefer mossy oak breakup with advantage classic coming in second. i'm wanting to get some natgear as soon as $$$ allowes... i use the mossy oak for hunting predators, turkeys, deer, squirrel, whistle pigs and even my grouse vest
