Best Predator Camo

Unread postby SHoff10 » Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:59 am

Ok, I know that it depends on the season and everything, but I was wondering what everyone thinks is the best choice. I only from October 1- December 1 so I am leaning towards fall gray but I would like to get some opinions. Most of the woods I hunt are oak, poplar, and maples. I do occassionally sit in a cedar but that's only on occasion. I usually hunt bigwoods and hill country. I hunt in Michigan all season and go to Kansas for 1-2 weeks every year. Would 3D Deception or Brown Deception be better than Fall Gray?

I cannot afford to buy multiples patterns so I am looking for the best bang for my buck.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I think Brown Deception is a good option for all season especially for tree stand hunting but also works great on the ground.

I also have Green Deception for early season before leaf drop but it seems to stand out later in the season to me.

No matter which pattern you pick you will be surprised by how this camo breaks up your outline. This season blew me away with close encounters and deer staring right thru me not being able to figure me out.

No doubt, brown deception looks best to me; HOWEVER, that's not the assessment. Fall Gray in my opinion is the best in a fleece suit. I don't nearly like the pattern as much from a visual perspective, but it is very effective. I put their fleece suit through the paces this season and that pattern did its job.

I think brown deception is better with more foilage and on the lighter-weight poly clothes.

Fall Gray will be the best "all season" choice. Just remember, with Predator you are not trying to look like something, you are trying to look like nothing. Fall Gray will destroy your human outline when in the tree.

I like and use several different Predator patterns. I like fall gray the best overall pattern.

I am a huge fan or both the Fall Gray and Brown Deception. I use both, however I use the Brown Deception until the leaves stat falling. I don't think you can go wrong either war personally...but for my money if I were buying one pattern only it would be Fall Gray.
