White, Dark camo what? I don't have any white clothing and am wanting to get out this year for the first time. I have a .222 that I have all sighted in and ready to go and have bought several calls.

I wear all my layers with my bibs and coat for regular hunting. Over that, i wear cover pants and coat (not insulated)white camo. Purchase anything that will blend in with the cover you are hunting.

I wear layers of camo clothing and on the outer shell I wear a white coverup suit white facemask and hat. Don't be afraid to hunt with what you have for gear(camo) you will still be able to get action just try and use something for a backdrop like a tree,bush,clump of grass etc.

I dress as warm and possible with layers and such and then I lay under a White Bed sheet I pile some snow over get comfortable and wait to see what happens. I think it keeps some heat it with the snow on top! Good luck! (Bring hand warmers)

I wear my camo cold gear and then put on the white camo from cabelas. with the tree branches on it. I started out with the white camo poncho from fleet farm, I think it was military surplus. I still have it and use it on my legs since I don't have the camo bottoms yet.........I was reading a really interesting article in Predator Masters that talked about how coyotes see color. I have saved it and will re-read it a few more times and report that back here. It was very interesting. The biggest things is to breakup your outline. They can see greens, but lots of their colors fade to tans

i have camo bibs that turn inside out and are white. And i bought a white jacket from scheels along with a white facemask and gloves. Thats what i wear if there is just snow when i'm going to be sitting. Otherwise if theres some black dirt showing ill wear my white jacket with black carhart bibs to blend in a little better. I always wear a white jacket since thats the most part of my body that is going to be moving and the white jacket blends in really good with the snow and is hard to detect movement. I normally am set up in a wide open field situation. When i do set up near or by cover i wear white bibs and camo jacket to blend in with the surroundings.

go buy a white painters suit from fleet farm ... one piece full body camo only spend seven bucks... grab a can of black spray paint and an extra suit then spraypaint sticks on one and leave one all white then you have your choice! works awesome

How long does it take for paint smell to go away? Also i tried using those one piece suits but they always ripped all over from putting on and off. (yours might be a different fabric though)

i've tried those suits also and mine have always ripped. I spent maybe 70 bucks total for white bibs and jacket. The jacket is thinner with a wind breaker type style inside with breathable mesh. Just got a big enough size to throw some layers on underneath and i'm good to go

i have a go-to layering system i wear when predator hunting so i can shed layers if were doing a spot and stalk or post/drive style hunt. as far as snow camo, im a HUGE fan of the Natgear snow camo. that stuff flat out rocks in open country and in the woods. ive got some of the northwoods snow camo too but it has a blueish hue to it so i usually just bring it along incase somebody else forgets theirs.

    • Those sure are pretty snowflakes..........
    • Misguided by love as pure as the driven snow.  
    •   Yep, am with ya......and most of us thank you. Should not be a difficult concept to understand.....except for a select Jv few.
    • So was I.  When I say "my equipment" won't be freezing up when I am hole hopping with the aid of my toasty warm Otter cottage, part of my equipment that won't be freezing up would be the ez ducer...   
    • Reinhardt was sincere, and I don't believe he was trying to sell anything,  He had a lot of knowledge about meat, and simply wanted to share it.   I didn't fault him for his politics, either.  He was simply misguided on that....        
    • I took Mickey in 2008. Bubbles 4 years later. Not too worried about winning as some on here .....as winning in  those years wasn't really winning, and so far, neither is picking the winner in 16, other than saying you picked the winner and "get it".
    • Had an opportunity to tag along with LeeKen to Bluestem Nature Conservancy and sit in a blind Saturday morning.  Thought it was unusual to see a deer with antlers late March.

    • Murphy’s Law   I went out this afternoon trout fishing.  I questioned the wisdom of fishing on a robin’s egg blue sky day.  Trout shun sunlight.  I went outside to check the weather. The warmth of the afternoon coaxed me out of the house.     I fished a stretch I have done well on in the past.  I knew because of the bright sun I would more than likely not do well on big trout this outing.  Trout do not have eye lids and shun bright sun. When I got to the stream the outdoor temperature was 58 degrees.  I took the water temperature and it was almost 50 degrees.  That is well within a good temperature range to score some trout.     I hit the water at 2:45pm.  The sun was high in the sky and not a single cloud was in the sky.  I knew from experience that days like these I typically fished the shaded side of the stream.  There was no shaded side of the stream.      The fishing was tough.  I had lots of follows and flashes at my lure.  None seemed to want to commit.   I decided to look for cover for the trout.  I decided anything to throw a little shade on the trout would make them feel comfortable.     The trout had lock jaw.  I decided to target broken water so the trout would feel secure and come out in the bright light.  They still were bashful.  I decided another trick was in order. I was going to throw in the biggest snarly messes and let the lure drop to the bottom and give it a tweak to start the blade going.  Bang bang and I was in business.  This only worked in deep runs and i lost a few lures throwing into the mess.     I ended the outing with 24 brown trout to hand. The biggest was about 16 inches.  It was 5:30pm.  I usually get out at a bridge and today was nothing different.  I stood on the bridge looking upstream.  There was a sweet log jam just upstream of the bridge and it was in shadows.     I decided i was going to go just upstream in the shadows and cast a few more times. I was still on the bridge looking upstream. I looked at my reel and there was a loop on the spool.  This loop needed to be cast out if I was going to continue fishing.  I decided the bridge afforded the best angle and no trees in the way to cast out the loop in my spool.     I cast off the bridge.  The loop caught and dropped my cast about 15 yards upstream.  It nearly didn't land in the water.  It hit tight to the bank and I had a big snarl in my reel.  I looked down and saw my panther martin was barely in the water.  I decided to pull off some line and get this snarl out.  I made even a bigger mess.     I sat down on the bridge rail and started to mess with my giant snarl.  I again looked at my lure and it was barely in the water.  I was worried about losing the lure because of the snarl.  It was safe and barely dangling in the water.     I  really made a mess with the reel.  I was cussing it and trying to untangle it.  I lost focus on my lure in the water. I was peering over my glasses and really putting all my attention on this mess and I heard a splash sound.  I looked upstream and saw nothing.  I looked back at the reel.  I heard a louder splash and looked over the bridge at my lure suspended in the water.     My mouth dropped open wide and I stared in disbelief.  Me messing with the line caused the lure to jig up and down in the water.  This attracted a predator.  Not 2 inches from my lure was a giant trout suspended and staring at the size 9 gold panther martin deluxe waiting for it to move again.     My reel was still messed up so there was no battling this huge female trout on my reel if it decided to quit dancing with my panther martin and eat it. The bridge was at least 15 feet off the water and the idea of battling a monster trout from above was not appealing.  I worked frantically on the snarl.  It got even more messed up.     My fighting with this reel and keeping one eye on the giant female was nerve racking.  She still was very interested in my lure.  She circled it like a shark.  It was more than I could stand.  I decided if I hooked up with her with this less than optimal circumstances I would lose her and maybe kill her because of the bridge nonsense.     I decided to try to catch her another day.  The reel was non functional and i grabbed the line and lifted the lure out of the water.  What happened next is going to be relived in my dreams for the rest of my life.  The monstrous female brown bum rushed the lure as I lifted it out of the water.  It launched itself out of the water snapping at the spinner.  It was a swing and a miss. I got my wits back together and thought about cutting out the snarl and trying for her. I decided a return trip was on the agenda.  As I write this recollection I smile and cuss my circumstances.
