What color should you not wear deer hunting?
Deer do not see well in the longer and middle wavelengths (oranges, greens, yellows, browns and reds) in the visible color spectrum. These colors appear in shades of gray or yellow. Where they see very well is in the low wavelengths — the blue range.
Is Camo necessary for deer hunting?
For ungulate and predator hunting of all types, camo is helpful but not required. If you’ll be bowhunting, camouflage becomes much more important. Similarly, good concealment may be more important for predators calling than for spot-and-stalk or tree stand deer hunting.

Does vanilla extract attract deer?
Yes, the vanilla extract will attract deer. It also makes a good cover scent. Spray it on your boots before you walk in. Once you get to where you are going to hunt spray several bushes around your stand.
What time of day are most deer killed?
Most of them are specifically between 9:00 and 10:00 in the morning to be exact. It’s a proven time, and it could have a lot to do with the common perception among deer hunters that things slow down once early morning is through.
Will deer come back after they smell you?
Spooked deer will return to their bedding area, but when they return depends on how much the intrusion frightened them. If they can‘t pinpoint the threat, they‘ll likely return sooner than if they saw or smelled you. The goal is to intercept the deer when it returns hours later from downwind.
What should you not wear while hunting?
Wear hunter orange or another highly visible color. Wear bright clothing. Make yourself more visible. Choose colors that stand out, like red, orange or green, and avoid white, blacks, browns, earth-toned greens and animal-colored clothing.
What colors do deer see?
“Deer are essentially red–green color blind like some humans. Their color vision is limited to the short [blue] and middle [green] wavelength colors. As a result, deer likely can distinguish blue from red, but not green from red, or orange from red.”
Can you wear jeans hunting?
Just don’t wear your blue jeans; you‘ll stick out like a sore thumb. The best camo is one that blends in with the environment and doesn’t contain a lot of blues and whites (unless you‘re hunting during snowfall, when whites will do just fine).
Can you wear black pants hunting?
avoid black. I have a black microfleece mock-T that I wear a lot for bowhunting. I’ve never had any issues wearing it, or killing elk with it on. It doesn’t matter what you‘re wearingif you‘re moving, they see you moving, camo or solids.
What do you wear to go hunting?
If you‘ll be doing most of your hunting in warm weather, you‘ll need lightweight shirts and pants, and maybe even a light jacket. For very cold weather, you‘ll need not only base layers on top and bottom, but a heavier shirt, pants and a warm, insulated jacket.

Is Sitka camo worth the money?
It may be a little more expensive but it’s definitely worth it, the camo pattern on the sitka gear is so much more advanced that the KUIU. Plus in my opinion, Sitka is way more durable, comfortable, and warm. Customer service sucks. I always end up back to Sitka when I can afford it or First Lite.
What do you wear under hunting pants?
Polyester and merino wool work well as mid-layer fabrics, too, but nylon is also ideal. Keep in mind that, in milder weather, you may want to use your mid-layer as your outer layer. In that case, you may want a mid-layer that offers some waterproof protection.
