While it may not be as necessary as some believe, it is a good idea to break up your sillouete as much as possible. It definately depends on your hunting situation. I hunt from a stand,even in rifle season. You never know when one will walk right up to you. With the contour of the land at 20 yards one may even be nose to nose with you. They less they percieve a threat, the more likely they are to continue on their route. Now if you are hunting from a blind, then no. Escpecially if it is a fixed blind they are used too.
I do agree with Txhillbilly though, that most of what you see in stores are gimmicks that you don't need. I have a few calls and some cover scent, I wear the camo and use scent eliminator. I try to keep it simple though. I hunt with a Remington 700 Sendero 7mm Mag, weight being a priority, I can't haul all of those "gimmicks" to my stand.
