Bowhunter with binoculars

One of your hunting challenges is getting close to the game. Ideally, you should be undetectable to your quarry. Camouflage can help. Wearing head-to-toe camouflage clothing will break up your human shape and make movement less noticeable. Select patterns that have a good contrast between light and dark colors.

(Be sure to check your local regulations for the mandatory use of daylight fluorescent orange during hunting season.)

Camouflage Gear

  • Camouflage garments include shirts, jackets, pants, hats, gloves, boots, belts, head nets, and rain gear.
  • Most equipment, including arrows and quivers, is available with camouflage finishes.
  • If you prefer not to wear camouflage head nets or gloves, camouflage face “makeup” can be applied directly to the skin.
  • Pay close attention to any shiny items on your clothing, such as a belt buckle. They usually can be dulled by a permanent black marker. Also check for any bright, reflective surfaces on your equipment, including the shiny broadheads on your arrows. This attention to detail will help you have a successful hunt.
