    Realtree max-1 and Mountain mimicry for me also. Game guard works well late season too.

    I happen to like the "Natural Gear" camo. Not very popular but its what I use most. To me it appears to blend in well with almost everything.

    Another reason for moving to solids is that we hunt more and more in areas that have a strong liberal population (like certain areas of Colorado or Arizona come to mind) and I really don't want to stand out when I am in town buying groceries, at a restaurant for dinner after a day of hunting or leaving a hotel room early in the morning. For example, last year we based a Colorado deer hunt out of a condo in a ski town. No one bats an eye if you are in solid color outdoor gear.

    Part of my shift has been the difficulty in getting quality camo gear for my wife, but I can get earth tone solids for her. In our hunts together, I have never seen that camo made the difference in a hunt.

    All that said...if you are a camo guy, I think you should generally pick the pattern you like as I doubt the pattern will make much of a difference. If you want to be more critical in your selection, go tans for desert and greens for forest hunts.

    In pretty much every situation I can think where camo might have made the difference, I think avoiding movement was far more critical.
    Been thinking about this myself actually... especially in restaurants to or from...

    I found in most of Wisconsin, you stand out of your NOT wearing some camo article of clothing

    I try to steer away from camo as much as possible, I like to blend into the general public. I do have camo and do wear it but it’s all about comfort for me, not pattern. I wear my hunting clothes all year long an I actually feel like a dork if I’m all camo’ed out.

    That being said it would be weird to see a hunter on the cover of a hunting magazine not wearing camo.
