I would say the colour of the pattern from Predator doesn't matter to the animals but the pattern colour form Predator matters to the hunter.. All of their patterns are equally effective but it makes perfect business sense to vary the colours of the patterns so that Predator sells 2 sets rather than one. And that is the only reason why there is a spring green and fall grey. For the hunter not the hunted.

I used fall gray for 5 years and we primarily are after elk on foot with archery and we are not in tree stands. Fall grey works really well on the ground too, we've had tons of elk come right up closeto us and on theoccasions where we were busted I couldn't blame the camo. Mostly from wind or stupid human noises. I am learning and if I thought it was the camo, I would have replaced. I have seen other hunters with fall grey in the field and it is effective. I have since bought a set from graywolf woolens in fall brown and wolf skin.. Nice to not be in cotton. So why did I get fall brown instead of grey? Well, for one, colour doesn't matter and what the hell.. Its still the pattern, not the colour. Fall grey in an aspen stand is the bomb.

Greg, the "Wolfskin" is very expensive, but I'm not sure I have heard a bad thing about it. I remember you had a very detailed post about it a while back, but I can't find it. Do you think you could find that for me, or give me a spark notes version[8D]

Sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions guys, I just want to do as much research as I can before I bite the bullet and buy a lot of new camo.

Thanks again guys!

Here you go, Rory... this is probably the thread you're referring to. You will, however, have to weed through some of the nonsense (like posting a pic of one item and a description of another at a totally different price ) to get to some facts -- but it's probably the thread where I've given more behind-the-scenes details of GWW's operation than any other:

Rory lol, did you see the comment you left one this thread. It's strange how our opinions can change. I remember saying I would keep my current bow for many years to come...now I'm ready to sell it off in a heartbeat

I know Will, but the more I think about it, the more I realize it will be well worth it in the end. Let's hope so anyway!
