Default DEER'S EYE SIGHT

WHY DO WE SPEND BIG MONEY ON CAMO, WHEN WE COULD WEAR RED CLOTHING, AND IF HUNTERS DID, WOULD IT BE MORE EFFECTIVE. SHOULD HUNTERS USE RED LIGHTS WALKING TO THERE STANDS....JUST WANTING SOME THOUGHTS. BECAUSE ARE WE WEARING CAMO TO HIDE FROM OTHER HUNTERS.....I COULD IMAGE A FEW GUYS FROM THIS SITE WEARING RED JUMP SUITS NEXT HUNTING SEASON...I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME FIELD TESTS DONE....SEEING GUYS IN ALL RED WOULD REALLY MAKE ME LAUGH.

COULD WEAR RED CLOTHING
I'm not sure about other states, but I know way back in the day WI residents had to wear a red Santa suit instead of blaze orange for gun season

I think you can wear almost any color as long as there is a pattern to break up your outline. Look how effective ASAT is as only a duo-color camo pattern.

Just buy camo that isn't made in China.

"Since then the textile industry has moved to China. Today nearly all camo is made in China and they commonly add permanent UV-Brightening dyes to all base cloth"

ive been talking about red camo for years....but green sounds better than red, since that article says they cant see red or green, or maybe some red/green camo.

the uv brightners raised my brow though, thought uv wash cleaned /fixed that problem, guess not, now I need a blacklight/flashlight?

and I thought those UV no flash cameras......deer can see the UV....is the no flash UV? oh well I guess, which is worse a light flash, or a no flash? guess then only deer can see the flash.....not humans.

now what about elk? moose? caribou? bear?

If I told the average, avid hunter......he could kill more and bigger deer if he'd wear pink/yellow camo.

He'd refuse.

IS THERE A GOOD TEST TO SEE IF YOUR CAMO HAS UV MATERIALS IN THEM?
