Florida Camo

Postby Mud Chucker » Wed Jan 31, 2007 8:03 am

I've noticed that when I'm out on the marsh that most of the "duck" camo patterns have way too much tan and brown in them. We just don't have that winter die off this far south. I don't mind on myself that much because I'm usually behind catails or palm fronds. But the boat sticks out like a sore thumb (to me at least). I've gots some Maxx-4 netting over it right now. I've seem pics of "shadow grass" and that looks good, but havn't gotten my grubby hands on any to really eyeball it. Or is this like so many latest and greatest things out there, "You are useing what? Let me sell you what you really need!". What are you guys using? Thoughts?

i use mainly max-4 and i don't have any problems...i did use mossy oak break-up last year and i didn't have a problem with that either...i think it has a little more green in it than the max-4 does...just depends on where you are going to be hunting the most...hope this helps...go with the max-4...it is the safe bet...

The gear bag in the Pic Pud posted is Max-4HD.
It's the best all around for FLorida so far.

Wow! Thanks for the pics and everything. The camo that I wear is a bit eclectic (whatever I find on closeout :yes: ), most of it is like the multi use pattern on the shirt. Waders look just like mine, but hopefully don't leak in the crotch like mine do. Bought the first pair about 4 weeks ago, took them back after two hunts, now this pair leaks too. Going to have a "chat" with the manufacturer about that. What is the material used on the boat made out of? How do you keep it from shredding while tooling down the road (even if it's folded up)? Not sure if I can use it because my boat is so small and I have serious space constraints, but I'll have to look into something like that. Looks style'in!

This is the way the Fast Grass type materials should really look.
