Default All Black bow for Hunting???

I've been considering an all black bow for hunting....specifically the GTO Ninja. What are your thoughts?

I didn't vote, but I sure remember when all hunting bows were mostly black. My old Martin Cougars and Cougar Magnums were green! Of course back then lots of hunters either painted them or used the removable camo paint.

If I were to vote it would be to go with the camo.

Thanks, Cougar...I got into bow hunting somewhat late. My first bow was a High Country Excalibur ...all my hunting bows have always been camo.

The guys on The Wild Outdoors use all black bows, and they hunt blinds and treestands. They've done pretty good.

Hunting with all black clothes...that would be Ninja-like. Thanks for the responses.

An all black bow won't hurt anything unless it was high gloss paint, otherwise a bow is just that a bow, skinny limbs and a quiver. Its not a big blob. On the other hand I camo my bow just because I think it looks better and its neat looking, I don't camo it to hide it from the deer unless it was some bright color. I use oak leaves and non removable camo spray paint and make patterns on my recurve with them! Its allot of fun!
