Camo suggestions?
« on: November 28, 2021, 09:39:07 AM »
I'm new to hunting and trying to get what gear I'll need for the spring season. Looking at going after turkeys in the Spokane/Coville area and the Cle Elum/Teanaway area. What camo patterns do y'all suggest? Do I need face and gun coverings (blued Mossberg 500 with wood stock)?

My opinion pick the company or pattern you like the best and learn to be still. Turkeys in the spring do have the best eyes but you could just pick up a leafy type jacket to add to your kit. Many animals have been killed wearing jeans and red flannels. Wind and movement are your enemy. Sportsmans warehouse has their brand which has a nice pattern and is fairly affordable. Sitka Sub Alpine, Firstlite Fusion and Kuiu Verde are 3 of my favorites but price is up there. Probably my favorite of all time is Realtree Max1.

I just don't hunt turkeys so I get camo that works for all and use a leafy jacket and pants for turkey.  I wore blue jeans with leafy pull over panyanthis spring.  With a aiktka subalpine 3/4 zip.  Movement is the killer with turkeys.  Make sure you don't wear read white or blue.  That is the color of tom turkey heads.  Face cover is an absolute and gun is no porblem.  Have killed a few with wood stock and blued barrel.  Turkey bio told me that a turkey'd eye site is equivalent to use reading a book a 100 yards and they see in color.  Good luck.

As has been stated, get whatever camo you can afford and like.  As long as you have good back cover and know when you can move, if needed, and when you can't, the camo pattern itself likely won't be what keeps you from killing turkeys.  I run a lot of MossyOak patterns, as that is what I grew up with and what my eyes seem to be drawn to, but I don't think any of the animals I have harvested really cared which pattern I was wearing.
