    Won't you admit...in the far right pic the legs look more broken up than the vest?

    Of course, but that's what Colorado makes us wear. A camo blaze orange would be better, and the other hunters would still see you.

    That's if it's proven that we do need to break up out pattern. If not, we might as well throw out the camo.


    My personal gut feeling is we need to break up out pattern, but the actual pattern isn't important. That's why red and black plaid has always worked. If you want to hide from your buddy. Get camo.

    Camo orange isn't allowed at all even if it did meet 500 sq. inches.

    Thanks for clearing that up, here in Ca, orange is optional during archery and rifle seasons. While hunting at home I might throw on a orange hat on opening day just so some idiot dosen't get trigger happy when they see a bush across the canyon move

    Here's something I never understood. Bow hunters don't need to wear BO. If BO isn't suppose to be seen by game, and that is what the DOW will tell you. Why can't bow hunters wear it? There's lots of guns used by hunters at the same time. Muzzleloader for one, and bear hunters for the whole month of Sept with a rifle for another. There's also some special deer tags with rifles during bow season.

    They use the excuse that bow hunters need to get closer. What difference would that make if the game can't see the BO vest? They sneak around and don't seem to be a danger from other hunters. Some of my shots are within bow range. Does that mean I don't need BO?

    Makes no sense to me.

    Here's the problem. You can't wash out the brighteners. Special washes with no brighteners won't put more brighteners in the material, but it can't take it out. It takes a spray that's made to remove the brighteners. It will stay UV free as long as you don't ever wash with brighteners again.

    has anyone tested this brightner thing themselves? ive seen that pic before and allways assumed it was just another scheeme to get us to by buy buy. i guess its worth testing, just not during the season i hope that loin cloth doesnt show up as blue....... some of the cammo out there is so rediculously priced, i do love the wool variety though when the temps drop. anyone try that sitka stuff? looks cool and has that gortex stuff we all love but the price tag is insane. ive been using bdus and cheap stuff from an armysurplus store that works well for me. eastmans should give us all a free variety of cammo to test this season, yeah that would be cool.
