Ok guys,

It's starting to look like I will be able to get out and chase the LongBeards this year. Not having done this for a few years now and putting on a few extra pounds, I am curious as to what many of you feel is the best pattern to take to the Turkey woods here in Ohio??? Heck it is also a good reason to get out and buy some more hunting stuff.

I was thinking along the lines of Mossy Oaks New Break-Up, is this a good pattern choice? You have to realise that ShadowGrass has been my Camo choice for all of the Waterfowl hunting that I do.

Good Luck and Good Hunting

Thanks for the reply Darron. Is that pattern still available? I was also wondering about MossyOak Obsession. Does anyone have any experience with this pattern and does it have enough green in it to break things up?

I guess I am used to things being still pretty dark and grey in the area's that I used to hunt.

Good Luck and Good Hunting

I personally wear predator brown early in the season and then switch to the darker patterns like realtree or mossy oak as the season rolls on. The key though is to make sure you are completely concealed without any skin showing because this reflects the sun more than a camo pattern. Make sure you remain still with your back up against a big tree and not sillouted and you should be fine.

Mossy-Oak Break up is fine here, Sometimes I wear Shadowgrass depending on the location. Edge of woods in grass, weeds, etc.

Obsession would work just fine too.

In my opinion,mossy oak breakup does not hold up.Too much black that fades into a light grey.I had it and only got a season out of it before it faded to much to wear.Didnt really notice it till I saw it in a picture taken in the sun,switched to hardwoods HD green and I am very happy with it.seems to hold its colors better.They just dont make a black dye that stays black on cotton poly blends.My 2 cents.

Obsession looks like it will be nice later
in the season when there is a lot of green.
seclusion 3d and realtree hardwoods are both
nice patterns aswell. as long as your covered from head
to toe and stay still any camo would probably work.

I have used Realtree Advantage Hardwoods Green ever since it came out. I have found a couple of polyester long sleeve shirts and thin pants that just look deadly with this pattern on them. I have had friends walk right by me while hunting during the spring.

My friend and I saw a trespassper squirrel hunting on proprety that we were hunting on as well last September. I climbed a hill and snuck to within 10 yards of this kid before I popped out and scared the S__T out of him. He said he had permission, but didn't and when I mentioned calling the sheriff....He bolted. He was hunting with a pellet gun, so I wasn't too worried about being shot. Probably not too safe though.

Anyways, great pattern for the spring and early fall.

Mossy Oak shadow leaf works great here and where I hunt in southeast Georgia.It's also a great pattern for early season bow hunting.

Homemade Ghillie suit, the commercial made ones are too dark. Snuck up on the one below wearing the suit. Cost about 12.00 to make.
