It’s not important at all. I have some camo, but any new stuff I buy will be in solids. I was 15 yards from a bull elk a few days ago wearing brown pants and a green shirt.
Well… technically ungulates are color blind, so red is basically the same as green."The best camouflage pattern is called, “Sit down and be quiet!” Your grandpa hunted deer in a red plaid coat, think about that for a second."
That's actually really helpful - I've always thought they see blaze orange as white, but never knew they could pick out blue.I agree with everyone else that it doesn’t matter during gun season. But, for what it’s worth, ungulates have dichromatic vision and see blaze orange as more of a grey. They do however see the color blue incredibly well, so steer clear of any old NWU-1 you find at the military surplus store.
Be it white or grey, they’re still seeing a big blob of a single color. I could see some of the broken up blaze orange perhaps being useful if a hunter doesn’t anticipate being in good cover during a stalk. I still wear whatever cheapo solid blaze vest I pick up first though.That's actually really helpful - I've always thought they see blaze orange as white, but never knew they could pick out blue.
