3D camo outfits

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering who has the full 3d suits for bowhunting. Gander Mountain's Guide Series jacket/pants combo looks like the best for the price at about $100. I can't tell if I'm a fan or not. It looks like you'd be covered pretty good, but I thought in might be a pain if the outfits easily catch burs, etc. Any thoughts from people who own them?

I own a set of 3D camo. I've had them so long that I can't remember the brand. Anyway, they hide you great, especially if their is a little breeze (makes the leaves move). I hunt really thick country and your thoughts about burs are right on. I pick up a lot of cockle burs and those @#$**&$ little things with the two prongs. The camo is really effective though. Works well on turkeys too.

Not usually a fan of cheapo products cause you usually get what you pay for. But I bought a so-called bug suit from Cabelas last year for $60 that doesn't work worth a lick for bugs but sure provides nice 3d leafy camo. It is basically mesh, so you can wear it early to late season over whatever clothing you like if you get a size with a little room to it.

On a sidenote from the sounds of it the little two prong things you're talking about are cat claw, at least that's what we call them. They seem to grow in really thick in mowed or logged areas, beaver ponds that go dry, that kind of stuff. I agree they're very annoying. My brother had a sweatshirt a few years back that got those little round burrs that are a little smaller than pea sized, along with cat claw all over it. We threw it in the wood furnace. He picked for probably half an hour & you couldn't even tell he'd started.

bigbucks,

Just talked to my dad (he's better with the botany) and that's exactly what he called them. I had the same thing happen to a wool sweater last year and I didn't even know where to start. I do seem to pick them up in areas that have been cut in the las five years or so. Thanks for the info.

One more hint, the stuff you see flowering yellow right now in the dry swamps is the plants that will contain those little two pronged &()&()&(&(*&(*!!!! But what are you going to do when your pheasant dog is hot and leads you right thru them? Thats why your outer layer better be something that doesn't let them stick or you'll be doing the burn thing, as you mentioned.

I have an ASAT suit that I wear if I know I will be scouting/hunting or groud hunting. Its a pretty sweet suit. I have had other hunters walk right by me and never see me. its kinda fun.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
