Commercial hunting pattern camo.

Military camo is always going to be a compromise and while it's good for a lot of environments,
it'll never be as good as commercial hunting camo specifically designed for a particular environment.
>>
>>22774289
Not really. Photo camo works pretty good if you don't move, but it tends to form into a solid color when looked from afar.

Besides, everyone knows Ghillie suit is the best camo.

Realistically, unless you're hunting turkey, your prey has worse eyesight than you. Old tricolor will do fine for 90% of forests in the US. Spending more will only get you very marginal returns if you already have something like MARPAT

That said, Mossy oak and Lost camo are the sexiest commercial camo.

>And where did they test tropic you retard?

You can go back through the past three years worth of news regarding the camo trials if you want to read the specifics of the scientific method used to evaluate patterns.

>Further more if you read their actual tests you would see that there were camo paterns that beat multi cam.


That statement may be true in specific environments, for instance Multicam is not a suitable camouflage for dense jungle environments - Hence Multicam Tropic. That's why the testing was for a family of camouflages with the transitional variant of the final four contestants shown in pic related. Of all these finalists it was concluded that the Multicam family of patterns to include Aird and Tropical variants there of performed better than any other.

>Stop pulling shit out of your ass.

Again, these are the facts. You're just going to have to deal with them.
>>
>>22776812
>>Further more if you read their actual tests you would see that there were camo paterns that beat multi cam

Just to further debunk this statement I should point out that the specific data from the Phase IV trials have not been released other than the final four contestants and obviously the overall winner.

If you're attempting to refer to the 2009 camo trials you'll find that Multicam (now OCP) did in fact perform the best, and that's why it won.

That's one of the stupidest things I've ever read. Are you suggesting someone will be spotted while
moving in commercial hunting camo, because the observer notices a leaf or branch in the camo pattern
is out of place?

after reading where this thread went i'm not so sure i want to post this here...

But i'm going hunting on the 4th for the first time. It was a last minute planned thing and i cannot post pone it so i will have to go with the best camo (at a low price).

needs to be durable as possible but i don't really care if it doesn't blend in as well as real tree does. I don't have the money for real tree and honestly don't see much point in it as my state requires i wear a significant amount of orange anyway.

Pic related is in the same Unit i'm going hunting in. I'll be hunting prong horn, any cheap recommendations?

No other words, just simple ones you refuse to accept: They tested transitional, tropic and arid version of Multicam, and they performed better than the transitional, tropic and arid versions of everything else. It's not that hard to understand, but then again I'm not mentally challenged.

A Tigers stripes is only a two color Camo, while Tigerstripes is a four color Camo, both try to blend into the Environment in different ways.

>>
>>22782240
So in your opinion he shouldn't use UCP, Multicam, a woodland patterned ghillie suit, or sniper veils?
Because ghillie suits and sniper veils really help in wooded terrain in my opinion.
>>22789131
The tiger stripes are meant to "break up" the longest parts into visually smaller ones. A tiger is longer horizontal than it is vertical, so the stripes are vertical.
A human is vertically longer, so the stripes run horizontal to make the human appear as shorter sections. Please note that this also works when a human lies prone, as the stripes then are vertical breaking up the long horizontal form the same way it does on the tiger.
