Camo for Turkey Hunting

4 posts in this topic

I am looking at purchasing some new camo for spring turkey hunting in central mn and am wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what to go with? Color? Manufacturer? Thanks

For spring time it's gotta have lots of green. I love my green Predator, but it's kinda hard to find. That being said, I spend a lot of time in a pop up blind. In that case, black is the color of choice.

Personally I like the realtree HD patterns. Something with green is good. Realty is most camo patterns will do the job nicely.

Another thing to consider is on what season you hunt. The early seasons there is very little green in the woods most springs. By the later seasons there's a lot of green. Reality though as there is more foilage the camo is less important and there is lots of natural cover available. Main thing is to sit still.

Good Luck!

I'm also a fan of the Predator line of camo for spring turkeys. As Borch mentioned, there is no substitute for sitting still, and time of season is of vital importance when selecting camo.

The main purpose of it is to break up your outline, and avoid looking like a blob of any one color or shape that can be picked out. That's why I like any pattern with quite a few limbs and 3D-like effect such as the Predator. I wouldn't shy away from most camo patterns, save the ones that are darker/lighter against opposing backgrounds. Some of the older mossy oak patterns were a bit too dark for me, esp. when damp/wet, against a later spring background.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
