Are Ghillie suits useful for hunting deer, elk, turkey, ground hogs, etc?? Or are they basically overkill? Are regular woodland BDUs as effective?

For hunting animals, a ghillie suit is overkill. You won't be comfortable which means you will be moving around which means the animals will see you. Wear comfortable clothing while hunting and DON'T MOVE. You don't even need camo if you are still enough.

Aren't most animals color blind? You could wear bright orange and they wont know the difference. I think the ghilli suit was made for two legged predators, who's senses are 10 times more acute.

I've hunted most North American creatures and found that camo is necessary only for turkeys, ducks and geese. Being still and using the natural terrain are more important.

huh???

A deer will smell or hear you long before you can get anywhere near them. If they are colorblind, it is a moot point.

Also a horse has senses ten time more acute than a human!!! They can smell anything a half mile away. They have inpeccible hearing......


No offense, but human senses are considered primitive to most any animal out there, especially wild animals.
