    Is blue camo better than conventional camo at keeping "hidden" / better at being blended to the bush surroundings. Sorry for the confusion

    I have never seen blue leaves or blue trees , I highly suggest you going with standard camo . Blue camo is the tacticool flavor of the day

    Being in the Navy and forced to wear blue digital camo I can tell you it doesn't blend with anything natural. For the Navy's purpose the camo patern was designed to hide dirt and grease and paint which are the most common environmental issues for sailors as they perform cleaning and maintenance on ships, aircraft, and machinery.

    Get some multicam and call it good.

    It might be good for camo at night. I can't see it's usefulness for anything else unless you're trying to sneak into a Smurf's house.

    Unless you are hunting Turkey or something like that, you don`t need camo, you need to not move ! Deer & such see movement not your blue jeans or your plaid shirt, or your hunter orange vest..............

    Thanks guys, I thought it might be a load of BS and then a guy claimed to have stalked a gemsbok within 4m. It was a hunting article. So I thought I would post and get experienced advice

    I guess it's possible if the gemsbok was deaf and blind from laughing so hard at the "BLUE" camo.:cool:

    Yea, you're right but there's three.
    One just to the right of the guy kneeling's hat. You can see his forearm (skin colored) and he's leaning slightly forward.

    I see at least 5. There was a picture posted in a hunting magazine one time captioned can you see the deer. He had a second picture with the deer (1) circled. He was swamped with copies of his picture with more deer circled that he had not seen.:eek: I forgot how many but it was a herd.

    Almost all of the hunting camouflage I see for forested areas seems to be designed to for hunters who think if they can’t see a hunter, the deer won’t either. They think deer process vision the same way we do.

    The best camouflage I’ve seen has big, bold irregular ‘stripes & blocks’ that break up the human form. Not an overall pattern of similar texture and color that pretty much looks like a human in a mottled medium grey jumpsuit.

    Some of these will give you an idea:

    Look at the guys on the steps and the crosswalk.

    And this one too:

    Most herbivores are color blind. In fact, to give a herbivore 20/20 vision you would have to strap coke bottles on it's head. I know I have killed more than one deer wearing a white wife beater T-shirt.
