    The way I see it, if you can wear fluorescent orange while rifle hunting, you should be able to wear short sleeves..but I also antelope hunted in my bra because it was too hot.. lol I'm not a fan of being super hot.

    My advice is if you need to hunt in short sleeves, go easy on the body glitter
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    I think camo may help, but it not nearly as important as being quite and keeping the wind in your face. Last week got within fifty yards of a 25" 4 and an 18" 3 point three different times, but I just couldn't get a clear shot. I was in a white tee shirt and blue gym shorts.

    I am sure you can kill in shorts / blue jeans / and short sleeves, but I feel that wearing camo (pants and long sleeve) MAY give you just those few extra seconds to make a shot. Whether this is true or not, I don't know. But I like to believe that when I jump a deer and he runs then turns back it may take him just a tad bit longer to realize what I am if I am wearing all camo compared to non camo or just a camo short sleeve t-shirt.

    This year in our great A zone (temps in the 100's) I wore a long sleeve enduraskin t-shirt. I don't think I would have been any cooler wearing just a short sleeve-t and I truely believe it made the difference with the buck I killed as he walked right to us and even stopped to look our direction for a few seconds. If I was wearing a short-sleeve t-shirt there is a good chance he would have picked me off standing out infront of a bush.

    I tend to hunt in shorts and S/S shirts in the early season. Call me crazy but it beats wearing pants! Off topic but I have also started wearing light weight Inov-8 trail running shoes instead of hiking boots. Feet stay much cooler not begin in leather boots, watch out for cactus though!
