Default Matching Camo

Well, I washed all my camo today and I realized that I dont have 2 pieces of camo that are of the same pattern. Even, The Limbs on my bow are different camo then on my riser. Is this a bad or a good thing?

The hunting fashion police will drag you from your stand if you don't match.

Dont sweat it...and %#@* the fashion police! I rotate washings and always am mismatching my camo. I dont show any "flesh" except for my eyes. A dip of the head will cover those if needed. Anything that helps break up your profile will work....unless you are into that UV stuff.

I switched to Realtree AP last year and still have a ton of Mossy Oak stuff so I just wear whats clean.

That camo matches better than mine. And I cant hunt with a rifle in my part of NY. Or in the areas of NY that you can, 6 shot clip maximum.

In my opinion, unmatched camo is better than a complete matched set. Usually matched sets blob together and take on their primary color. Diff pants, jackets and hat seem to break you up better in my opinion, especially to the human eye. I wear camo to hide myself from other hunters, people, dogs, horseback riders and trespassers. As for the deer, my stands are usually so high, I have never had too many problems with deer picking me out.

Jacket-Woodlands
Facemask-Realtree HD
Hat-Realtree APG
Gloves-UA Digital


No, it doesn't matter
