    I wasn't too sure about stormy hardwoods but I saw some on a Phoenix and it looks bad Azz.

    People get so hung up on camo but to me it's about keeping still.

    isnt that camo mostly blue? from what i have heard, blue is the only color that deer can pick out. i would never hunt with anything blue.

    This is true, stay away from blue. Get yourself a Bloodtrail bow. They look awesome.

    Findings of the Study
    The results of our study confirmed that deer possess two (rather than three as in humans) types of cones allowing limited color vision (Figure 1). The cone that deer lack is the “red” cone, or the one sensitive to long wavelength colors such as red and orange. This suggests that wearing bright colors while hunting does not affect hunting success. This does not mean that these colors are invisible to deer, but rather that they are perceived differently.

    Deer are essentially red-green color blind like some humans. Their color vision is limited to the short (blue) and middle (green) wavelength colors. As a result, deer likely can distinguish blue from red, but not green from red, or orange from red. Therefore, it appears that hunters would be equally suited wearing green, red, or orange clothing but perhaps slightly disadvantaged wearing blue.
