Duck Camo choices

14 posts in this topic

Was wondering what everybody wears for duck camo?

I've got some Mossy Oak Shadowgrass, some Advantage Max-4, and my favorite Advantage Wetlands.

I think what you wear really depends on what season it is. If I had all the camo for every situation, I'd wear Shadowgrass early season, and Advantage Wetlands mid to late season, and Max-4 at the very end, mostly because its a vegetation transition from green to light brown to darker yet.

I've heard Mossy Oak has a New Shadowgrass and Duck Blind. Anyone seen anything else? What are your favorites?

Depending on the terrain, I hunt in Shadowgrass, Max-4, or Realtree Hardwoods.

max-4 I think is the best all around terrain for ducks, but I sure like Advantage wetland too.

Yeah I really like my Advantage Wetlands.

Max4 is a sweet pattern but it doesn't blend in with anything in the marsh, its just too dark.

Columbia's Delta Hunter "X" or DH Marsh is good looking stuff. Also New Shadowgrassm Advantage Wetlands and Duckblind.

Max-4 is too dark for a lot of hunting situations.

1989 Woodland Camo, brown

May have to step up as the old coat is finally giving up the gohst. Would like to go old-school with a Filson Waterfowl Coat- just plain old khaki brown canvas.

More likely, Drake has a coat in the Duck Blind that looks pretty.

since i goose hunt half the time in carharts and a grey hoodie, i will have to say what my favorite layout blind camo is... Mud. i have two gooseview xterminators and couldnt tell you which one is shadowgrass and which one is cornstalk half of the time because they are usually mudded up pretty good.

I really hate the trend in camo that the patterns have to be changed every year lately. I am a huge fan of the old Mossy Oak Shadow Grass, then I was forced to replace stuff with the New Shadow Grass, which actually grew on me a little. Now this year everything is the Mossy Oak Duck Blind. I like that camo keeps getting more detailed, but I shot just as many ducks in my old Shadowgrass as I did anything else.

I'm also a Shadow Grass guy.

It does seem that they are changing patterns every year.

It is unfortunate that the camo patterns that they have come up with in recent years is more suited for the waterfowl hunter of down south. It seems that alot of the patterns have alot of tree branches and such in them that make them extremely dark for the hunting situations that we face here in MN. I personally still use Fall Flight which I believe they do not make any more, it is a bit lighter than most. Hopefully someone will produce a better cattail pattern for better concealment.

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.
