I started using a synthetic ghillie last year and it is the best thing I have spent my money on for a while. It is in woodland camo and I added canvas to it to make it more brown. I trimmed anywhere my string may hit. I would set up in front of a thick tree or a bush while sitting on a double bull stool. I had a lot of deer coming super close and never got busted even when a couple glanced at me for a few seconds. They just went back to feeding. I was even successful twice while stalking in hardwoods. I was just wondering why more people haven't used them. Mine is scent free and it is a lot lighter than my blind or stand. I have it hanging in a pine right now or I would have some pics. Does anyone have any experience with them?
