 I have had pretty good results using digitally distorted grey patterns when we went bow hunting last year. It seems to cut down on an animal being able to catch you when moving. Observed my son thru binoculars from a distance and he blended well, body movement was softened,and the colouring was blended well to the environment. Now if we could camo sound that would be awesome...

I have realtree camo used it for years, like it and I've actually walked up on a deer about 10 yards away. She wasn't sure what she was seeing but she stood there for about 3 to 4 minutes tail up fluttering and I think she finally got a sent and bolted. It was very cool to actually get that close. Of course it was turkey season and no one had been shooting at her which makes a difference.

But, what is the use of camo, if you have to wear a big orange vest over top of it? I am orange, head to toe, so if someone shoots me, they got some splainin to do.

When you turkey hunt in the spring you don't wear any orange this why the extra safety course is needed before they will issue a licence to hunt turkey in the spring.

EXTRA safety course is just a money grab.

For the hunters out there, have you tried using minimal camouflage?  During a Brigade exercise, years ago, we had some time where no training was scheduled.  For something to do, they had us do stalking exercises against a master sniper.  I thought that if I could succeed with minimal cam, then I could do really well when properly done up.  We did three stalking exercises and I was the only one to beat the master sniper.  Not only that but I beat him on all three stalks. 
The point I'm trying to make is, don't rely too much on camouflage.  Develop your stalking skills.
