Default Camo Pattern

I'm living in Colorado now. I used to hunt in Maryland. What camo pattern is best in Colorado?

No one answer, unlike other parts of the country.
Archery or Rifle?
What season you hunt?
What do you hunt? (East Plains White Tails or Above Timberline Big Horn Sheep)
Where do you hunt? The plains? Low mountains? High mountains? Heavy Timber? Mixed Conifers? Thin Aspens? It all changes.

I like the predator stuff personally; however, for rifle hunting it requires 400 sq. in. of hunter orange so: blue jeans and an orange sweatshirt with an orange vest with an orange hat and a bunch of layers of any color will work fine (sorry).

Rifle in October/November. Around Meeker maybe? So regular clothes and orange suffice?

Oh lord no!!!!

Haven't you watched the outdoor channel for research?

come on guys we need tohelp this poor unenlightened soul into the world of Hunting merchandise.

You absolutely have to have, or you won't kill anything, Real Tree camo....NO wait Mossy Oak Camo.....NO wait Timber Ghost......No wait TreeBark is coming back..... No wait, Oh heck I forgot what the newest greatest camo is today.

Okay, so...well, You absolutely have to have scent suppression.... ScentBlocker is the best.....No Wait ScentLock...No wait Scent Shield..No wait what is the one that says: "forget the wind JUST HUNT!" ???? Thats got to be the best.....Ahh Heck pick the one thats the most expensive it must be the best if it costs more.

Don't forget your calls. YOu need Primo's, Knight & hales, Madd calls, ELK calls, Quaker Boy, Sceerie, Heck just get one of each.

Now you have to get a 4 wheeler. Yamaha is the best....No wait Artic Cat....No wait Polaris......No wait Honda.........Well anyway whichever one you get be sure to load it down with accesories like winches, and gun scabards, and coolers, and heated seats, and anything that looks cool!

If you haven't guessed yet I'm be sarcastic. We tend to make this way too dificult. Dress warm, in layers. Preferably in something that keeps you warm even if its wet like wool. Get out there and have a good time.

I hunt first special elk season using rifle on public land near Craig (not that far from Meeker), and I dress just as I described, seriously.
That said, a fine set of camo would be fine and for that area, if I was buying, then I would go for the Predator Camo as it has enough white in it to work in the Aspens; however, don't forget your hunter orange, if it is public ground, thenyou definitely WANT it. (seriously)

Rfle season........I wouldn't worry about it too much.Stick to earth toned clothing, wool is still best. Look into army surplus.

When bowhunting I mix & match. Different patterns for tops,bottoms,jackets etc. A good example might be advantage timber for the bottoms and breakup for the top. One is more brownish and woodsy one is darker and shadowy (is that a word?).
