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.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
