Since I am semi-retired my play time is now, hit the woods alot, trying to get the best of critters.
I wrote before that I was in need of a new set of camo, and yesterday I tried some new stuff out and thought I would pass my feelings on.
Now I am a Mossy Oak fan, now I have nothing against Real Tree, or the others, matter of fact I still have a set of the original TreeBark and use it plus some of the others. But I believe where you hunt has alot to do with it.
I tried out Mossy Oak treestand camo, and first found a tree, I went up two, a hickory, and beech. Now I did not hunt, just sat and waited. I had a fox take a leak below me and 3 does walk right by the tree. I was not up that high, stopped when the limbs began.
I next got down and sat in two different spots, one area (open cattle field) was in a small valley, among some dead trees. Seen no deer movement but 11 cattle walked right to me and did not notice I was their. These cows in most cases have helped me when deer were in the area. They check them out so if you see them and they are eye balling something you got a "heads-up".
The other spot was in a old cedar thicket, seen a nice 6 point and a doe, both came in down wind from me and walked the ridge some 40 yards out.
Best thing of all the owner walked the ridgeline and walked right behind me. After he passed me I got up (not to scare the grap out of him) and called for him. He laughed and stated he did not see me.
I am very impressed with the pattern, and will try it out in the up coming weeks during the season.
I believe it is just as good on the ground as it is in a tree.
My two cent worth.
