    I normally go with good warm camo and a good orange vest (full sleeves are better but I cannot find one like dad has).

    I do have a full orange parka, it was a gift, best and warmest hunting coat of all time, I will wear it for all my big game but I wish I had another one in camo.

    Well, ok, I actually do wear it for Turkey, and Migratory. The other times I have it mainly because it's a purpose designed garment for hunting, and has nice things like shell loops, and big pockets.

    I wear blaze for most of my small game, bird, and big game hunting. It's better to be seen by all.

    This year we had a group of turkeys move between a couple of guys on their watches during deer season, both guys were head to toe in blaze orange, and they didn't seem to care, so I'm not sure it's even really necessary for turkey either.....
    I had a similar experience a couple of weeks ago too. A flock of about 15 or 20 turkeys pecked their way across the field towards me and then hopped the fence about 15 yards away. No concern whatsoever for my orange. 10 minutes after that, a group of coyotes came out of the treeline along the same route the turkeys had followed. I ended up getting 2 of them with a single shot 20 gauge slug gun and they never did figure out where the shooting was coming from, blaze orange and all. I was under a big cedar in the shadows but when I looked back at the spot from where the coyotes had been, my blaze touque was plainly visible sitting on my pack. Guess they just couldn't see my movement while reloading because of the shadows and the blaze didn't concern them.

    Rather than buying 2 sets of clothes, I have thick warm camo that I toss an orange vest over. A lot cheaper than a whole separate orange outfit...

    Camo at the end of the day still breaks up ur outline.

    I'm not a black powder hunter,but,I notice there's a one week BP gun hunt in WMU 73 along with bows. So,I suppose we still need blaze orange for another week,right?
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.
