I haven't had any personal experience with the others mentioned here but i have with ASAT. On one ocassion I had a mature buck looking right at me as I was in a bare tree with no cover. The buck seemed a little concerned but not enough to spook or even be cautious enough not to get stuck with an arrow at 25yds. He's on my wall now.

Another time, a 2 1/2 yr buck came in from a direction i did not expect and i found myself being stared at at 15yds while only 6ft up the tree. Once again, i was out in the open with no cover. That guy is also on my wall.

What I haven't tried is sitting on the ground and trying to accomplish this same thing with ASAT.

The great debate. Lots of good patterns out there, like some of the guys said, use what your hunting situation is. Some work better as a skyline pattern, some work better straight on like UltimateCamo, some look good on a shelf in a store as eye candy, but put some these pattern in a sepia tone as deer see in a situation where youre hunting and you may be suprised at what it looks like. Are you hunting on the ground, are you hunting out a tree, a blind, etc... Im a little biased of course : )

Deer dont see colors like humans do, we see in trichromatic vision, deer see in dichromatic, we have 3 cones, they have 2 cones. I think your most important hunting friend is scent/wind, movement, then camo.

Its like trying to hide this camera but bigger
