Default Predator Camo- which pattern to buy?

I'm looking into buying some new camo after this season, but I'm not sure on which Predator Pattern will work the best for me. I mostly hunt open hardwoods. I want to buy one that will work early season through late. I don't want to buy two different patterns.

Thanks..

The only two I'd wear year round is Fall Brown and Deception, you can hunt from second season, through spring gobbler, early archery through fall. I wouldn't do that in Spring Green nor Fall Grey. IMO.

Rory,
I was this close to getting some Predator this year, but I held off. Like you I was wanting one suit that would work pretty much all the time.

I was going to order Brown Deception.

Thanks for the input guys.
Also Rob, I completely forgot about using it spring turkey hunting as well. Thanks.

I'll do as much research as I can, and hopefully have some by spring turkey season....

Predator is anice pattern and if you can buy several sets you can cover the entire season. If your still not sold on the pattern, check out www.Ultimatecamo.com for a singularcolor and pattern that looks just as good inany foilage. The only constant we have in the woods is the Tree itself

i REALLY love the looks of fall brown...some deception looks great, but others will agree, it almost needs hand picked or you can get some thats too "blobby" and not so open....

i got a light weight fall gray set...im sure the deer would never notice me....but its a confidence thing...i FEEL like i stick out like a sore thumb....think i only wore it once or twice..only time id feel comfortable in gray would be snowy times...just me though....im very confident to the deer that youd be about as invisible as it gets in that stuff...

Greg, thanks for the link. But the fall grey looks too light-colored for late season, do you think the more light-colored
a pattern is, the less it tends to blob?
They both look great early season, but I'd love to hear about them late season as well.
