Blaze camo for bowhunting?

Recommended Posts

Ok so this might be a silly question. Why not blaze camo for bowhunting? The reason I ask is I need some cold weather gear for bowhunting and my BIL has a really nice deer hunting parka that is of the silent variety. It is of course blaze camo. But deer aren't supposed to be able to see colors, right? So the orange should show up as light gray, right? Which would be ideal for late season with little foliage left. Yet I only ever hear of archers wearing blaze when hunting during gun season.

Any thoughts? This would save a lot of money if I could borrow his parka, but I don't want to get busted.

The parka is similar to this

I've always been tempted to use my blaze orange for bow hunting late season also. It is much warmer then most of my camo and the wife would kill me if I went out and went crazy buying all new stuff.

Ya know, if it comes down to saving some money and staying warm. Go with it, I have had plenty of deer right on top of me while wearing solid blaze orange.

Also I believe that even during the muzzleoader season a bow hunter would still need to be in blaze. That runs till the end of November, so you will have one month after that. By than the deer will be so food oriented that you keeping warm and being out there are the only things that will matter.

Good luck to ya.

I think the deer are atracked to my blaze. They come right up to me when I am sitting on the ground during the gun season yet they spot me 50 yards away in a tree in camo.

Just a FYI about orange. You do need it while Muzzy season is open and that does not open till the sat after thanksgiving and goes to the middle of december.

Also on that note I do where orange when it gets cold and have shot most of my deer bow hunting while wearing orange.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
