Default Mossy Oak Duck Blind or Mossy Oak Shadow Grass

In this picture the material on the canoe is KW1, I think it's too light and my choice is between Mossy Oak Duck Blind or Mossy Oak Shadow grass mostly because thats what is available, please take a look at the grass behind my Son and let me know what your opinion is. This is a canoe and the spots I hit are not accessable via larger boat, I have more pictures too of the grasses.

i was told to go the lighter camo because when the ducks are circling they'll see you as a lighter tan with the reeds and the darker you would be a distinct darker tan that might give you away idk thats my opinion i always go with lighter

Movement is the key. Wear a head net to hide your face and to help break up the Camo tarp you have on your canoe just cut some Reed and grass all around you!

Don't need much to break up the pattern.

I have also been taught a way to make my own grass matts but need a bit of time with a camera to share with all of you.

Save you money - use what you have - just add a bit of local grass and reed.

I agree with JW, as usual.

Put that baby in the shadows.... she'll darken up on her own. Keep your heads down and keep still... shoot'em with the gear down.

It's too bad:

It's Unlawful to

Use common reed (Phragmites australis) in any manner for the
construction of hunting blinds on lands owned or controlled by
DNR.
