Duck Camo choices

Recommended Posts

Scott M

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.

I love the Old Mossy Oak Shadowgrass. Also like Columbia's Delta Hunter for it's versatility.

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.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
