Of the military camos, MARPAT is best for my North Florida AO, but several hunting camos actually work better. RealTree Hardwoods is the best I have found for my foliage in general. Though the upper foliage may be bright green, lower down browns and greys predominate, as in the undergrowth.
GI Woodland is horribly dark and easily spotted. If very faded it works better.
ACU is too 'grey' - you'll look like a ghostly blob strolling through the trees.

I always think guys in cammo are up to something! :p

I never used cammo hunting until after I got out of the military and had a ton of it laying around...

I Still don't use cammo for most hunting, just turkeys and water fowl.
Believe me, you don't want ANYTHING moving around when hunting turkeys, so leave that leaf cut stuff at home!

I have a military digital pattern (army, I think, lots of green) that works for the jeep and for most hunting.

But for the boat, NOTHING beats a piece of old CAMMO net for trucks and stuff!
Everyone makes fun of my old cammo net, but they don't laugh anymore when the birds come right in on it!

Have you ever heard of modifying your cammo clothing by using mud and jamming sticks into it if necessary in order to blend in better? Do they make cammo with elastic strap holes down it so you can use bushes to make it more effective?

Fishnet.

In the Marines, we had to make our own 'Stalking' outfits,
(Called 'Gillie Suits')
They were usually an old Parka shell with a fish net sewed to it, and you used burlap, string, whatever, and attached it to the fish net.

Use neutral colors that are found about anywhere on your gillie suit, and you can add local 'Color' when you get there...

As you progressed from one environment to another you could change your cammo by pulling out the stuff from last place, and putting in grasses or whatever from new place.

That is a good idea, JeepHammer! I already have a ghilli suit for Airsofting, too!

I can use plain 'ol woodland most of the year but right now (Late November) and thru January Alpenflage works perfect.

Jeephammer-what type of waterfowl hunting do you do? The wife, father in law, and I hunt ducks every October in NW PA, around Pymatuning Lake. We really like that type of hunting the best. Go way back in the wetlands in canoes. We just use commercial wetlands camo clothes but we painted our canoes ourselves.
